The first “Kid Mayor” of Winnipeg has been announced!
Nazar Viznytsya is officially the first kid mayor of Winnipeg!
There were over 200 applicants that applied for the role, and the 12 year old was chosen by judges!
He was encouraged to apply because of his teacher, and focused on improving downtown safety (adding more street lights)!
Also, 11-year-old Gabi Wagner was named as Deputy Kid Mayor. Her application suggested equal pay for men and women, encouraging residents to spend more time outdoors and improved street safety.
