On February 1st, Youth Ottawa and members of the Ottawa Youth Engagement Committee officially launched the 2nd annual "Mayor For a Day Contest" in partnership with Mayor Jim Watson and the City of Ottawa. The launch took place at Immaculata High School where students were invited to learn more about the Mayor's office, his role, and his future plans for the city, followed by a question and answer period.

The contest is open until February 28th. We invite all Ottawa High School students from Grades 9-12 to submit a 5 minute YouTube video or a 500 word essay on: What they love about living in Ottawa and their ideas for how to make Ottawa an even better place to live. The submissions can be made through this LINK
