|Charity, one of the essay contest winners from 2015, stopped|
by the Cities Matter booth this year! Charity got her
essay form in 2015 from the state fair, but you can also
find it online at www.lmc.org/MFAD17.
For the 2017 Mayor for a Day Essay Contest, the League 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 sent to the League by Oct. 13, so download an entry form for a child you know today!
