Leeds Children's Mayor Competition

Leeds Children's Mayor Competition

Our entry into this competition has become and annual tradition. The children are invited to write a manifesto saying how they would improve Leeds if they were the Children's Mayor. The manifesto must be based on one of the twelve wishes for a more child friendly Leeds. 


From all the entries, the ten finalists are chosen by a panel of children and young people. Children and young people in the city are then asked to vote for who they would like to elect as their next Children's Mayor - and the winner is announced by theLord Mayor in an event every November. 


We had nine pupils put themselves forward this year. The standard was high and we just couldn't decide between Tom and Jake (see their manifestos below) so we asked the judges in Leeds to make the tough choice! Well don to all the children who took part and good luck to Tom and Jake.
