Mayor for a Day: Youth Essay Contest

Post Date:06/01/2017 5:00 AM

 

What would you do if you were Sandy City's Mayor? 

During the negative presidential campaign, Mayor Dolan started the #FindTheGood campaign to show what politics should be about: Service! Our leaders, both now and in the future, must remember they serve the people, are building communities and have a responsibility to be a positive force for good.

The rules are simple:

Write a short essay (250 word limit) describing what you would do to make Sandy City better if you were Mayor. Some ideas include:

Why is your city great? What makes it special?

What would you do to improve your city if you were Mayor for a Day?

What specific community issues or concerns do you see in your neighborhood?

The most important rule is to use your creativity and have fun!

Submit your essay online at DolanNow.com/contest by June 15, 2017.

The contest is open to all students (K through high school), but only one essay is accepted per student.

A total of three grand prizes of $150 and “Mayor for a Day” will be awarded to one elementary student, one middle school student and one high school student, with runner-up prize baskets given for Honorable Mentions.
