Hey Kids! Want to be Mayor for a Day?

What if kids were in charge of your city? The League of Minnesota Cities is asking 4th, 5th, and 6th graders what they would do as "Mayor for a Day" in our annual essay contest—specifically, how they would make it easier for residents to get from place to place (entries must be handwritten and postmarked no later than October 17). 

Three winners will be chosen, awarded $100 each, and winning essays will be published in Minnesota Cities magazine. Please help us spread the word to students through your local schools, teachers, libraries, councilmembers, media, and parents—or via your city website or newsletter! Access the entry form at, and direct any questions to Don Reeder at
