All they have to do is submit an essay answering the question, "What would you do if you were mayor for a day?"  While winners don't actually get to be mayor for a day, they do get $100 and recognition in "Minnesota Cities Magazine."  Students along with their parent or guardian can submit essays via online, mail, or email.

Deadline to submit the essay is December 12th, and winners will be announced in January.
