- Your submission must be “clean”
It must not contain any illegal, inappropriate, or potentially offensive content, profanity, or any content or information that would not be appropriate for a broad audience.

We know you have great ideas and we can’t wait to see them! Your submission should be completely original material that does not infringe on the rights of another.
Let's Get Started
What do all neighborhoods have in common? They all have streets. While a street provides a pathway to get from one place to another, a street can also serve the community in many other ways. Streets connect people but they can also be barriers to connection. A street can also tell you a lot about the neighborhood itself.
Consider taking a walk down your street. Is it enjoyable? What do you like about it? What don’t you like about it? Where do you go? And how do you get there? These are the things that contribute to the story your street tells, as well as your individual experiences on that street.
You may also consider interviewing a friend, family member, or neighbor about your street (please observe safe social distancing while doing so). Then, start to answer the questions below to inspire the story you’d like to tell about your street. Based on your responses, or those you’ve received from others, share your street story through photos, videos, artwork, poetry, short stories, or other creative formats.
All entries will be displayed online on the Our Streets virtual gallery and featured in a live gallery event in Summer 2021.
We want to hear your street story!
- 3. How busy is the street?
a. Are there people out and about? What are they doing?
