League of Cities sponsors If I Were Mayor essay contest

Each spring, the North Dakota League of Cities sponsors a statewide If I Were Mayor essay contest for third- and seventh-grade students. The contest encourages young people to think about public service and future community leadership. Essays must address why the student feels their community is great and what they would do to improve their city if they were mayor.

If I Were Mayor essay contest winners will be announced during City Government Week, scheduled for April 5-9. Winners will receive a $150 cash prize and have their essays featured in the League’s publication, CITYScan. The deadline to submit entries is March 12.
