MAYOR FOR A DAY – ESSAY CONTEST
What would our cities look like if kids were in charge? Find out by having kids you know take part in the 2017 Mayor for a Day Essay Contest!
The League of Minnesota Cities wants to hear how fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-graders who live in Minnesota answer this question: If you were mayor for a day, what would you do to show people that local governments are good places to work?
Three winners will be awarded $100, and their essays will be published in Minnesota Cities magazine.
To find out more about local government careers and why city employees love what they do, essay writers can visit the careers section of the Cities Matter webpage. There students will find what real people have to say about their jobs working in cities, and can see how visitors to the Minnesota State Fair learned more about which city careers need their “superpowers.”
Essay submissions must be submitted by October 13, so download an entry form for a child you know right here.
