Municipal Awareness Day – “Mayor for a Day” Contest

Today, June 24th, 2020 is Municipal Awareness Day!

Youth are invited to participate in our new “Mayor for a Day” contest. Students in grades 5 to 9 are invited to write a 500-word essay or produce a 5 minute video outlining their vision for the community. 

This unique and exciting opportunity engages local youth in municipal politics, what they like best about Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s, developments or even improvements they would like see, and more. Winners will have a donation made in their name to a charity organization of their choice. Include in your submission where you wish to have your donation made and why.

Winners will be announced in July and will take part in a council meeting at a future date.

Submit your video or essay to [email protected] by July 10th, 2020
