• Special to the Daily Leader
The League of Kansas Municipalities invited all Kansas high school students to participate in an essay contest, “The World Around You: How To Improve Your City” to identify what changes they would like to initiate in their community.
On Feb. 3, Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson presented the awards as part of the League’s annual City Hall Day. Nearly 200 students participated in the essay contest. Five winners were selected as regional winners, and one winner was declared the overall state winner.
Regional winners were awarded with a plaque and a $1,500 savings bond. The overall state winner was awarded with a plaque and a $2,000 savings bond.
Promoting good city government is important to the League of Kansas Municipalities, and this essay contest provided students the opportunity to reflect on the role of local government.
EDitor’s NOTE: Will’s complete essay is on PAGE 5A.
