The City of Portage la Prairie is looking for a city youth councillor for the third year since they opened the position.

"We're looking to fill that seat," says City Councillor Liz Driedger. "If you are under the age of 18 and enrolled as a full-time student you can self-nominate. And as a youth member of Council you have the opportunity to participate in deliberations of city issues at public council meetings, but just not vote."

She explains potential candidates must submit a single page essay about themselves and why they want to take on the role. Nominations or applications must be in by Friday, September 29th, at the end of the business day.
