All eighth grade students in the Village of Croton are invited to participate in a statewide essay contest, organized by the NY Conference of Mayors (NYCOM), addressing the topic, “If I Were Mayor, I Would..”
Essays must be between 350-500 words. Only one essay may be submitted per student. Essayists should make sure their plans are consistent with the legal powers of a Village Mayor in New York State.
Three winning essays will be selected. The first place winner will receive $150, second place $75 and third place $50. The first place winner along with his/her parents, teacher and mayor will be invited to and recognized at our Annual Meeting at the Sagamore Hotel in Bolton Landing.
Brian Pugh, Mayor
