3 Students win WV Municipal League essay contest; receive awards in Charleston

Posted: Updated:

What would you do if you were mayor of your town or city?

That question was posed to 7th grade students across West Virginia in an essay contest sponsored by West Virginia Municipal League.

The three winners each received an award plaque and a $250 savings bond during a ceremony on Monday, February 18, at the Charleston Marriott.

Among the winners was Tre' Tattle. He talked about what he thought helped his essay stand out for the judges. "I guess it was because most kids did actually write about wanting to be the mayor. I guess I was the odd ball of the group and wrote about not being the mayor at first," said Tattle.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, D-W.Va., presented the students with their awards.
