VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –If you were Mayor what would you do? That's what the City of Valdosta is asking area sixth graders in an essay contest.

The winners will receive prizes such as savings bonds and will be honored by Mayor John Fretti in April.

In 350 words or less, students should use their knowledge of civics and language arts to explain how they'd make difference if they had the highest elected position in the city.

The public information officer says most of last year's entries were well thought out. 

"They would build more parks," said Sementha Mathews, City of Valdosta Public Information Officer. "They would feed the homeless. They would build more animal shelters for the animals and build better roads. The most popular were hire more police and firemen."

The deadline to submit essays is March 2nd. For more details on the contest, click here.
