Meaning of Home – Writing Contest

January 7 - February 18

Students in SD71 and SD72 can help Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North build homes by entering. Students across the country have an opportunity to help a local family become a Habitat homeowner, thanks to the Meaning of Home contest, a national writing contest in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada. Launching today, the Meaning of Home contest asks students in Grades 4, 5 and 6 to share what home means to them.

Three grand prize winners, one for each grade, will have the opportunity to direct a grant of $25,000 to a local Habitat for Humanity of their choice. Nine runners up will receive a grant of $5,000 to the Habitat build of their choice. For every contest entry, a donation of $10 will be made to that student’s local Habitat, ensuring every student can help build Habitat homes in their community.

The Meaning of Home contest is open to all Grades 4, 5 and 6 students across Canada. Submissions will be accepted online between January 7 and February 18, and winners will be announced in April. More information on how to enter, as well as details on prizing, can be found at www.meaningofhome.ca, or by contacting Tom Beshr, Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North’s director of development, at (250) 334-3777 ext. 230 or tom@habitatnorthisland.com
