The City is inviting Mississauga youth ages 17-25 to share the reasons why they will vote in the October 27 municipal election.
Using the hashtag #Ivotebecause, contestants can share their reason, post a picture or create a video on social media. The most meaningful and creative reasons could win money towards school.
Winners and Prizes
1st prize is $2000 towards College or University
2nd prize is $1000 towards College or University
3rd prize is $500 toward College or University
Winners will be chosen based on creativity, meaningfulness and social media reach. Entrants may use the hashtags as many times as they wish; however only one submission per person will be judged. Winners will be judged by a panel and prizes will be awarded in the fall. The contest runs until midnight on Election Day.
