SG Centennial

Submit Your Ideas for the Centennial Time Capsule

The Centennial Planning Committee wants your feedback on what should be included in the Centennial time capsule. The time capsule will be sealed during a special dedication ceremony in January and will be opened in the year 2073, on the city’s 150th anniversary. Community members are invited to suggest possible items for inclusion. Suggested items must be small enough to fit in the time capsule, so please choose accordingly. The Centennial Planning Committee will decide on the final items to be included. Suggestions can be emailed to sgcommunications@sogate.org. Please include your name, phone number, a photo of the item, and a brief statement of the item’s significance.

South Gate students grades K-12 are invited to submit an essay or art piece about their life and experiences in South Gate. Winners from each grade level will be selected to have their essay/artwork placed in the time capsule. 

The city is also hosting a photo contest. Take a picture of what South Gate represents to you, or a photo of your favorite place in South Gate and use the hashtag #SGTimeCapsule. Winners will have their photographs placed in the time capsule.

Deadline for submissions is October 30, 2023.  For more information about this program and other Centennial Celebration activities, please email sgcommunications@sogate.org or call (323) 563-9502.
