Student Positions Open for City of Edina Commissions

Edina, Minn., April 19, 2019 – The City of Edina seeks student applications for its eight commissions. Two seats are available on each of the commissions.  

Commissions include:

Arts & Culture Commission

Community Health Commission

Energy & Environment Commission

Heritage Preservation Commission

Human Rights & Relations Commission

Parks & Recreation Commission

Planning Commission

Transportation Commission

“It’s important to have student commissioners on our commissions. They bring a youth perspective and a lot of times they’re involved in clubs that connect with the work that the City is doing,” said Community Engagement Coordinator MJ Lamon. “This opportunity is available to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. You don’t need to be a topic expert for the commission of interest; it’s an opportunity to learn about government and how it operates.”

Applicants must be entering Grades 10-12 for the 2019-2020 school year and be enrolled in Edina High School or live in Edina to participate. Appointments are yearlong and begin Sept. 1. Applications are due May 22. To learn more or to apply, visit
