Could your 8th grader be Mayor for a day?
In celebration of his 18th year in office, Mayor Scott Avedisian will be hosting the first ever “Mayor for a Day” contest in the City of Warwick. The contest, which is open to all 8th grade students in the city, requires an essay submission by April 15, 2018.
Students are tasked with writing about what they feel makes Warwick such a great place to live and visit. They must also submit ideas within the essay about their hopes for the future of the city. Essays should be no longer than 500 words.
The essay winner, as well as two runners-up, will be announced on April 23. The three students will be invited to join Mayor Avedisian as his guests at the first Food Trucks Night of the season, slated for Thursday, May 3 at City Hall.
The overall winner of the contest will be Mayor for the Day on Friday, May 4.
For more information about the contest, students are encouraged to speak to their principals, assistant principals and English teachers.
