Rocky Mountain Achievements: Colorado and Wyoming Celebrate State League Awards


Malakoff, Lava, Nation's Cities Weekly


With the eastern edge of the Rockies overhead, Colorado celebrates four 7th graders winning the "If I Were Mayor ..." essay contest and Wyoming presented the 2009 Community Hero Awards.

Essay Contest

Sponsored by the Colorado Municipal League and COLOTRUST, the 2009 "If I Were Mayor ..." essay contest gave Colorado 7th graders the opportunity to share ideas for explaining the importance of municipal government to other kids in their communities. Sponsors received more than 600 submissions this year.

Four students were recognized as winners for writing essays that described fun and educational ways to engage young people in municipal government through films, interactive video games, field trips and role playing activities.

The winners were:

* Tasha Sanger from Mandalay Middle School in Westminster, Colo.;

* Faith Marie McKenna from The Crest Academy in Salida, Colo.;

* Sinjin Kirkpatrick from St. Mary Catholic School in Greeley, Colo.; and

* Jennifer Frantz from Olathe Middle School in Olathe, Colo.

The winners were recognized at the Elected Officials Luncheon on June 19 at the Colorado Municipal League's Annual Conference. Each received a $500 savings bond from the Colorado Municipal League, and a recognition letter and certificate of achievement from NLC.

Community Hero Awards

The 2009 Community Hero Awards, presented by the Wyoming Association of Municipalities, recognized five partnerships that have successfully enhanced Wyoming communities.
