PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gov. Gina Raimondo is once again asking young girls what they would do if they were Rhode Island’s governor for a day.

The Democratic governor is holding a second annual Governor for a Day essay contest to encourage young girls to become leaders as part of Women’s History Month.

Raimondo says one of her favorite parts of being Rhode Island’s first female governor is talking to girls about their dreams.

The essay contest is open to Rhode Island girls in 5th through 8th grades.

The winner will be named “governor for a day” and spend a day meeting with leaders across state government this spring.

The deadline to submit essays to the governor’s communications office is March 14. Essays must be 400 words or less.
