2013 Minnesota State Fair

Nearly 9,000 people visit 'Cities Matter' booth

For the fifth consecutive year, Minnesotans and others visiting the State Fair had an opportunity to learn more about city services and the value of city government in our state by stopping by the League’s “Cities Matter” booth. At this year’s Great Get-Together, nearly 9,000 fairgoers had fun testing their knowledge about cities by playing our interactive “Cities Matter Game Show” (emceed by League staff) and answering quiz questions designed to be informative and entertaining.

Mayor for a Day essay contest
Kids ages 7-12 who are residents of Minnesota picked up entry forms for the League’s “Mayor For a Day” essay contest at the booth. The essay contest is being held to commemorate the League’s Centennial year, and four prizes of $100 each will be awarded in two age categories (two winners in each category). Winning “Mayor For a Day” entries will be published in a future edition of Minnesota Cities magazine.
