Mayor's Challenge


LYNNWOOD, WA (September 27, 2018) - Lynnwood Mayor Nicola Smith has issued a Mayor's Challenge that encourages local students to explore and propose solutions to authentic issues in our community by using STEM principles (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Students in grades 4-12 in the Edmonds School District will have the opportunity to work alongside City engineers, technicians, and subject matter experts to research and develop a proposal that addresses one of the Challenge Issues.

In partnership with the Edmonds School District, the Mayor's Challenge proposals will be presented during the District's 2019 STEM Expo on Monday, April 29, 2019 at Mountlake Terrace High. After reviewing the proposals, our team of technical advisers will determine if the student proposals can be implemented. Students working on the Mayor's Challenge will have the opportunity to interact with professionals in our community and learn more about STEM careers and the academic pathways that support their goals.

  • Parks Invasive Plant Inventory and Control
