Time to enter 'If I Were Mayor' contest

Deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. March 25

Beaverton students have several more weeks to enter the annual "If I Were Mayor, I Would..." contest.

Students in grades 4 through 12 submit original work about how they would lead the city and plan for the future.

The deadline is 4 p.m. March 25.

Winners will be chosen by grade levels and media:

• Elementary School (grades 4-5): Poster

• Middle School (grades 6-8): Essay

• High School (grades 9-12): Digital media presentation

Winners at the city level will receive a $50 Visa gift card and earn a berth in the statewide competition in July, where they might win an iPad Air 2 tablet computer.

Mayor Denny Doyle and members of the Beaverton City Council will judge the Beaverton entries based on creativity, clarity and sincerity of thought, grammar and subject relevancy.

Local winners will present their entries during the April 19 City Council meeting.

The local contest is sponsored by the city and Oregon Mayors Association.
