NEW ORLEANS – Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu and the 2018 NOLA Commission announced the Next 300 Challenge winners, and the winners took part in a roundtable discussion about their projects. Supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and Southwest Airlines, the Next 300 Challenge is an idea competition that seeks to generate and seed innovative and collaborative solutions to some of the most systemic and generational challenges facing New Orleans.
“The Next 300 Challenge provides an opportunity for changemakers in our community to come forward and propose fresh ideas and solutions to address the some of our city’s greatest challenges,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “As much as the Tricentennial is an opportunity to honor our past, it is also a time when we can come together and determine where we want to go, and this challenge speaks to that. We are especially grateful for the support of the Kellogg Foundation and Southwest Airlines whose generous support is helping make the winning projects possible.”
