“A Day in the Life” Video Contest: How Students See Professional Management

In February 2014, the ICMA student chapter at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill issued a challenge to other ICMA student chapters to create videos that would show a facet of life in local government.

The videos had to be original, memorable, and focus on:

  • a professional local government administrator, deputy administrator, or other professional staff
  • a process that makes the community better and how that process was launched
  • a well-run local government
  • a community leader who helps to promote efficient, effective, and ethical local governments

In 2014, the Villanova ICMA Student Chapter took the prize, but in 2015, UNC won the video contest! The winning video will be aired at the ICMA Annual Conference in Seattle, WA in September 2015.
