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 in conjunction with City Government Week, April 6-10, 2020 and will receive a $150 cash prize and have their essays featured in the League’s publication, CITYScan. Entries are due to the North Dakota League of Cities via mail or email no later than Friday, March 13, 2020.
