Thanks to all the students who submitted materials for the 2017 contest – the contest officially closed on April 17, 2017.
Mayor John Cook awarded three local students with $50 gift certificates for their original work submitted as part of the 2017 “If I Were Mayor…” student contest sponsored by the Oregon Mayors Association (OMA).
In the Elementary School Poster category, Isabelle Gonzalez from Metzger Elementary School won praise for her plan to add parks, trees and transportation infrastructure. Middle school student Abigail Rader submitted the winning essay outlining her goals for Tigard and Tigard High School student Kennedy Parish won for her video that included public feedback on important issues: https://youtu.be/_p77mfhq0Ko.
These winning entries will represent Tigard in the statewide contest where three winners will receive Apple iPad Air 2s from the OMA. Statewide winners will be notified (along with their Mayor) in mid-July. The winner will be invited to the OMA Annual Conference in Lebanon to be recognized and receive their prize.
Good luck to all our students!
If you missed this year’s event, start planning now for the 2018 contest!
