2024 Mayor for Day Contest — Call for Submissions

The City of Delta is excited to launch the annual Mayor for a Day Contest, giving local youth the chance to immerse themselves in a day of civic leadership, serving alongside Mayor George V. Harvie. Students residing in Delta between grades 5-7 are invited to apply for this unique and exciting opportunity. 

Students are asked to submit their response to the question, “Why do you want to be Mayor for a Day?” Applications open Wednesday, April 3 and close Friday, April 26, after which two students will be invited to take a look behind the scenes of local government. The students will enjoy lunch with the Mayor, take a tour of City Hall, and shadow the Mayor through daily events. 

“Mayor for a Day is a fantastic opportunity for local youth to explore the world of local government and learn more about the community they call home,” said Mayor George V. Harvie. “Each year, I look forward to spending time with the bright and thoughtful students who take part in this program and giving them the chance to see the important work that we do at City Hall. I hope this experience will inspire future leaders and help students foster a deeper connection with their community.”
