Local high school students will have a chance to get an inside look at municipal politics courtesy of Mayor Nancy Peckford.
The Municipality of North Grenville has announced a “Mayor for a Day” contest, open to students in grades 9-12.
Applicants need to outline their vision for a better North Grenville and what they’d do to make that vision a reality.
The winner will get to spend a day in the life of Mayor Peckford, who says this is an exciting opportunity to get kids more invested in their community.
“It’s a great way for young leaders in our community to not only learn more about municipal politics, and get to know their local Council, but to shine the light on issues that youth care about,” she says.
The deadline to submit an application is October 9th, and the winner will get to be mayor for a day on the 18th.
