What does home mean to you?

National Writing Contest for Grades 4, 5 and 6

Thank you to all the teachers and students who participated in the Meaning of Home contest in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada. We are currently in the judging process. Please check back here for the announcement of our contest winners in May.

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. Each entry results in a $10 donation to a local Habitat and the winner in each grade gets to direct a $25,000 grant to a Habitat build of their choice. Nine runners-up (3 per grade) will also get to direct a $5,000 grant towards the Habitat build of their choice. Additional prizes include an iPad, and class pizza party for each of the grand prize winners. Sign up to be on the email list now!

Teachers: Sign up and stay informed!
