Kid Mayor of Winnipeg Application


Mayor Brian Bowman is inviting kids between the ages of eight (8) and twelve (12) years to apply for a chance to become Kid Mayor of the City of Winnipeg!

All you need to do is explain what you think Mayors do, and what you’d do to make Winnipeg a better place to live and why. Keep it under 250 words, make it into a video if you can, and send it to the Mayor’s Office. Applicants are encouraged to provide a photo as well.

Entries will be reviewed by an external panel of judges, and one lucky submission will be selected to become Winnipeg’s Kid Mayor!

As Kid Mayor, you’ll get an opportunity to join Mayor Brian Bowman for an exciting day of being Mayor where you will have an opportunity to pitch your idea to City Councillors on how to make Winnipeg a better place, cut a ribbon or two, and even host your own press conference!

Talk to your parent or guardian to get their permission, and then get started on your idea to make Winnipeg a better place to live! Entries will be received until Friday May 1, 2020.
