City launches Mayor for a Day Contest


The City of Sault Ste. Marie is launching its first “Mayor for a Day‟ contest to encourage Grade 5 and 6 elementary students to get involved in their local government. This contest provides the opportunity for youth to submit an idea to City Council on how to make Sault Ste. Marie a better place to live.

“I’m excited to be participating in this contest and I‟m looking forward to spending time with our young Mayor for a Day and their class this June. I’d like to thank Sault North Rotary for partnering with us on this fun initiative,” remarked Mayor Christian Provenzano.

The winner will take a photo with the Mayor, tour the Civic Centre and officially open a Council meeting – and of course, host a class pizza party.

The “Mayor for a Day‟ initiative is open to students in grades 5 and 6. To enter the contest students must submit an essay, letter, poem, picture, song, video or any other creative piece to answer these questions:

1. Why would you like to be the Mayor for a day?
2. If you were the Mayor, what would you do?
3. How did you come up with your idea?
4. What are the things you like best about Sault Ste. Marie?

  1. The mayor has a much bigger fish to fry, quit trying to ignore it, it won’t go away.
    Why is the city letting essar hold ssm hostage?
    They are screwing this city to a standstill and quite obviously getting away with it.
    Refuse to pay this, refuse to pay that, money that is owing and past due.
    They do what they want with no repercussions.
    It’s time to sever ties with these billionaire deadbeats, for good.
    Having anything to do with them was the largest mistake in the history of SSM.
