#CityHallSelfie Day

August 14, 2020

It's the best day of the year! #CityHallSelfie Day is August 14, 2020!

This is your chance to showcase your local gov love. Participation is easy:

  1. Take a picture of yourself in front of your local government building
  2. Post the picture on social media with the hashtag #CityHallSelfie

We'll have trophies, recognition and prizes for the people and organizations that show the most pride and creativity on the big day. ELGL has partnered with Bang the Table on the award program and outreach leading up to and on the big day.


This day is all about local government pride.

So it doesn't matter if you work for a town, county, special district - just hop in front of your building, snap a picture, and use the hashtag to share it with the world!


Everything you need to know about the big day!
