If I Were Mayor, I Would…
The Oregon Mayors Association and the city of Newberg invite students to share their ideas about what they would do if they were mayor. Students in fourth and fifth grade can submit a poster, while sixth- through eighth-grade students must write a 500- to 1,000-word essay. Local winners will receive an iPad Air 2. The deadline for submission is April 11.
