After 15 years and some 90,000 essays, GMA has discontinued the statewide "If I Were Mayor, I Would" essay contest for 6th graders. Cities, however, are encouraged to hold their own local contests.
GMA remains committed to working with educators in Georgia and we look forward to the next step in that process. Thank you to the thousands of 6th graders - and their teachers and parents who encouraged them! - who participated each year! Your essays were brilliant, profound, insightful, sad, funny and always a bright spot in our year.
