The inaugural Aspen Challenge took place in partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Founded in 1853, LAUSD is the second largest district in the nation and enrolls more than 640,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade, at over 900 Schools including nearly 200 high schools, and in 187 public charter schools. The boundaries spread over 720 square mils and include the mega-city of Los Angeles as well as all, or parts of, 31 smaller municipalities plus several unincorporated sections of Southern California.

 

The mission of the Beyond the Bell Branch is to ensure that all children and youth in LAUSD have access to high quality, safe, and supervised academic, enrichment, and recreation programs that inspire learning and achievement beyond the regular school day (before and after school and Saturdays).

LOS ANGELES CHALLENGES 2013

 

Anna Deavere Smith

 I challenge you, the students of Los Angeles,CA, to do impromptu performances to cause those around you to open hearts, minds, and eyes, when you perceived that they are shut.

 

David Gallo

I challenge you, the students of Los Angeles,CA, to find a way to start a social movement to protect the oceans. We need people to understand that our activity is harmful to life in the sea and that we need to change our habits. It’s a difficult task because the issue is not some big event like an oil spill. Instead it something that happens a little bit every single day.

 

Dean Kamen

I challenge you, the students of Los Angeles, Ca. to find an effective way to direct community activities that increases awareness about and enthusiasm for science and technology among high school students. Be it through the mechanism of FIRST, or some other avenue down which more and more students and schools directly engage in the science, I challenge you to move the dial on the student enthusiasm, interest, and participation.

 

Kristin Groos Richmond

I challenge you, the students of Los Angeles,CA how would you leverage these underutilized resources (e.g. schools on the weekends) to a place where you and your peers could come together in the interest of creating a healthier community, in regards to food? In your design solution, please be sure to paint the picture of what this would look like from incentivizing your peers to be apart of this community, to securing the space, to food and benefits this would have on your communities at large.

Linda Burch

I challenge you, the students of Los Angeles,CA, to think about your role as an active participant in the digital world and define yourselves what it means to be a good digital citizen. Then take one issue that you care deeply about and find a way to use media to create a positive change in your community and inspire other to do the same.

Pierre Dulaine

I challenge you, the students of Los Angeles, CA, to use an art form you like, remembering that dance is a form of communication and conflict resolution, to make a difference and create change in your community. How can you ladies and gentleman take this into your community, and make it successful.
