Local Government Week

As part of Local Government Week 2020, Camden Council hosted the annual Mayor for a Day Public Speaking Competition. 

This year, due to the NSW Government COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings, for the first time the competition was conducted digitally. Nominated Year 6 students were required to video their speeches and submit them online.

The students were asked to deliver a short three-minute speech about; Why they would like to be the Mayor of Camden and what they would do for the Local Government Area. 

The Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli judged 13 speeches on Friday 14 August 2020. With this, we are pleased to announce the following students were chosen as the winner and runner up:

  • Mayor - Tasmai Singh from Camden Public School
