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.
Please visit the NYCOM website (nycom.org) for more information about the contest.
