Mayor for a Day essay contest to showcase creative ideas

What would you do if you were the mayor of your city for a day?

Minnesota elementary school students ages 7-12 are invited to answer that question as part of an essay contest sponsored by the League of Minnesota Cities.

The contest is being held to commemorate the League’s centennial year, and four prizes of $100 each will be awarded in two age categories (two winners in each category).

Winners will be selected based on creativity, originality and legibility. Winning Mayor for a Day entries will be published in a future edition of Minnesota Cities magazine.

Completed essays must be postmarked by no later than November 1.
