2019 Junior Lord Mayor Competition opens
Be the little big boss of Melbourne
Now in its seventh year, the competition is free and open to students aged 10 to 13 years.
It aims to educate students about Melbourne, instil civic pride and highlight Melbourne's journey since being founded in 1835.
And the Junior Lord Mayor gets to lead the Moomba Parade. Entries close midnight 9 August 2019.
Melburnians of the Year
Simone and Ian Carson — the philanthropic duo behind SecondBite, which gives food to people in need — win Melbourne's highest accolade.
We showed pride
The Melbourne flag was raised, cupcakes devoured and Enterprize Wharf's pylons rattled to help mark our city's 183rd birthday.
Be proud, Melbourne. You're more marvellous and dazzling today than ever. Celebrate all that's great.
Winning style: Junior Lord Mayor Chloe Amalfi at the flag-raising ceremony.
