Mayor for a Day: Youth Essay Contest
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.
