Calling All Future Mayors

Mayor for a Day Essay Contest Entries due March 30

Rockville, Md., March 5, 2012 - Fourth-grade students in Rockville can have their chance to be Mayor for a Day at City Hall during the 11th Annual "If I Were Mayor, I Would..." contest. Entries for the contest must be submitted by March 30.

Each year, the Maryland Municipal League (MML) and the Maryland Mayors Association (MMA) invite fourth-grade students throughout the state to participate in the essay contest.

This year, the students will look around their communities and identify interesting problems or tasks, then decide which one they would address and describe how they would encourage residents to meet the challenges.

One winning essay will be selected from each of the MML's 11 regional districts throughout the state. The 11 winners will be recognized at a ceremony in May in Annapolis.

In addition to the winners chosen by MML and the MMA, the Mayor and Council will select their own fourth-grade winner attending a school in Rockville. The winner will be the Mayor of Rockville for a day.

Last year, Isabella Varea, a fourth-grader at St. Elizabeth's School, earned the honor with her essay that stressed the importance of working together to keep the citizens in her community happy and healthy. Varea spent her day as mayor touring the City's facilities, participating in a police ride-along and eating lunch with Mayor Marcuccio.
