Thank you for supporting Habitat for Humanity Canada through the Meaning of Home contest.
Grades 4, 5 and 6 students across Canada are invited to submit a poem or essay explaining what home means to them. It’s a great way for students to engage in an interactive and fun way, and it teaches youth the importance of safe, affordable housing.
Read the illustrated book of Rylan's winning entry!
One of my students who didn’t know she was a writer can now confidently say she is. She was a runner-up in the 2020 contest and was able to direct money to a Habitat for Humanity project in our community. This contest is one of a kind and changes so many lives.
