Deadline Approaches For "If I Were Mayor" Essay Contest

Maryland fourth graders are invited to share what they would do if they were mayor.

Raise your hand if you've ever uttered the words, "If I were mayor, I would..."

If you're in fourth grade, keep your hand up.

Fourth graders have until Friday to hit the deadline for the Maryland Municipal League's "If I Were Mayor, I Would..." essay contest. This year's entrants are asked to include a special focus on reaching out to all community members.

It's a statewide contest, but winning contestants get local recognition.

Last year, several of the district winners visited at the start of a council meeting to read parts of their essays. Litter, transportation and unity were hot topics of discussion that had current Mayor concerned for his job: "Thank goodness for age restrictions," .

Check out the photo gallery of last year's winners, and visit the Maryland Municipal League's website for more info.
