NEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell and the Office of Youth and Families are excited to announce the “Madame Mayor for a Day” essay contest. March is Women’s History Month and gives young girls and women a chance to celebrate their significant contributions to society. As such, the “Madame Mayor for a Day” essay contest encourages New Orleans girls to think about the positive impact they can make in their own community and beyond.
New Orleans girls between the ages of 11 and 18 are invited to submit an essay detailing how they would improve New Orleans if they were Mayor for the day. The contest is open for submissions beginning March 19, and closing April 19. Two winners will be selected, sworn in as ‘Deputy Mayor’, and get a chance to shadow Mayor Cantrell for an entire day.
