IF YOU RAN THE CITY...
What would you change?
Submit a video with your take on the issues you care about and win swag, cash, and more!
WHAT IS THE CONTEST?
Local government is one of the areas where citizens can have the most influence to affect the change they want to see, but participation in local elections is nearly always low. This is a hugely important part of our democracy, so we want to make Utah's young voices heard in local government. #IfIRanTheCity is a video contest for 16-29 year old Utah residents to share your ideas about what YOU would change in your cities, and to make civic participation fun - your video can be whatever you want it to be!
To enter the contest, submit a video about your ideas to run YOUR city by September 1st, 2021.
Winning participants will get prizes including cash and the chance to shadow your Mayor or City Councilor!
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
That's it! Have fun with your videos and make them as creative as you want - break out dance moves, replace the lyrics of a favorite song, or animate your ideas. Any style of video is acceptable. As long as you meet the above 3 criteria, your submission is eligible.
WHY DOES LOCAL GOVT MATTER?
Local solutions solve global problems.
