Sipma issues Mayor's Youth Challenge for 2019 State of the City event

Mayor Shaun Sipma has encouraged Minot’s youth to be part of the 2019 State of the City event by issuing his Mayor’s Youth Challenge during the Minot City Council meeting Monday night.

“The State of the City is an opportunity to communicate directly with the residents of Minot, and we want to make sure our youth are represented and included in the event,” Sipma said. “The Mayor’s Youth Challenge offers a variety of ways for our youth to be involved, and we look forward to their involvement.”

The Mayor’s Youth Challenge includes three categories:

  • Grades 3-4 will take part in a visual arts challenge to create original artwork with the theme “Illustrate how you feel about living in Minot.”
  • Grades 5-6 will take part in a language arts challenge with the theme “If I were Mayor…” The winner of this category will be named “Mayor for a Day” and will participate in events on the Mayor’s official calendar that day.
  • Grades 7-12 will participate in a video production challenge, with the goal of creating a video commercial between 1 minute and 3 minutes in length that exemplifies why Minot is a great place to live, work, and play.

The winners will be announced during the 2019 State of the City event and will receive a monetary award. More details can be found on the City of Minot website at

“We encourage all youth in these age groups to take part in the Mayor’s Youth Challenge,” Sipma said. “It will be a learning experience not only for them, but for us as well. We look forward to seeing different visions of Minot through the eyes of our youth.”
