The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee, in collaboration with the Municipality of North Grenville, is proud to host its first Mayor for a Day contest with Mayor Nancy Peckford on October 18, 2023.
Inspired by North Grenville’s 25th Anniversary events, North Grenville’s Mayor for a Day contest is a forward-looking opportunity to engage local youth in municipal politics and civic issues.
Students in Grades 9 to 12 who live in North Grenville are invited to apply by outlining their vision for making North Grenville a better place to live and suggestions for how to make it happen. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to experience a day with Mayor Peckford.
“I am thrilled to be hosting this first Mayor for a Day event in North Grenville. 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,” highlighted Mayor Nancy Peckford.
The successful applicant will shadow Mayor Peckford, have the chance to meet all members of Council, and attend key meetings where they can share their perspective and ideas. They will also get a tour of the Municipal Centre and key facilities, and will briefly take over the Municipality’s Instagram account.
The deadline to apply is Monday, October 9th. Diverse and dynamic youth are invited to apply. Details, including how to apply, are available at www.northgrenville.ca/Mayor4aDay.
