What would our cities look like if kids were in charge? The League of Minnesota Cities is holding its annual essay contest to find out!

 Mayor for a Day Essay Contest

The contest is open to Minnesotans who will be in the fourth, fifth, or sixth grades this school year. Entries for the 2020 Mayor for a Day essay contest must be postmarked by December 7. Three winners will be chosen from entries across the state of Minnesota and awarded $100, and will have their essays published in the League’s Minnesota Cities magazine. Winners only will be notified in early January, 2021.

This year’s essay question is: Cities provide a variety of services and programs that make our lives better, including parks & recreation, street maintenance, water and sewer, libraries, police, fire, and more! If you were mayor for a day, what would you do to make one of the services that your city provides even better?

We're eager to hear what Moorhead students have to say! Access submission forms at
