What would New Hope be like if kids were in charge? The Mayor for a Day Essay Contest is back to find out! The League of Minnesota Cities’ annual contest gives fourth, fifth and sixth graders a chance to share their thoughts for a chance to win $100 and recognition in Minnesota Cities magazine.

This year’s essay question is: Cities provide a variety of services and programs that make our lives better, including parks & rec, 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?
