The League of Minnesota Cities is holding their annual essay contest, and we’re encouraging elementary students in grades four to six to participate and share their vision of what they would do if they were mayor for a day. Mankato, North Mankato and Eagle Lake are participating.

Entries for the 2020 Mayor for a Day essay contest must be emailed or postmarked by Dec. 7. Submission forms and additional information are available online at Three winners will be chosen and awarded $100, as well as have their essays published in the League’s Minnesota Cities magazine.
