Previous Grand Prize Winners

As part of NAHRO’s Housing America Campaign, a poster contest is held each year for
children residing in affordable housing and community developments owned or administered by NAHRO member agencies. Posters reflect the national theme of “What
Home Means to Me”.
 
The “What Home Means to Me” Poster Contest is for all youth, K-12, who live in affordable and assisted housing. MN NAHRO will select three honorees in each category for submission to NCRC NAHRO. NCRC will then select 1 entry per age category to be submitted for national competition. National NAHRO will not accept submissions from individual housing authorities. Any submissions sent directly to national NAHRO will be disqualified. Winners will compete for an opportunity to win prize money at both the regional and national level!

Be sure to track all of your submissions by age group so that we can collect accurate data.

 

Local Chapter/State and Regional Council Competitions:  

Housing authorities submitting entries to the national poster contest must first send entries to its local/state NAHRO chapter. Local/state NAHRO chapters are encouraged to host their own poster contests and submit the winning posters from each age category to their regional council. Local/state chapter contests are optional. Each regional council will determine a deadline for poster contest entries and a date for regional judging. National NAHRO is not involved in the scheduling or conduct of regional council contests. The regional council will select three winners–one from each age category–and forward those on to the national competition in Washington, D.C. National NAHRO will not accept submissions from individual housing authorities. Any submissions sent directly to national NAHRO will be disqualified.

MN NAHRO will select three honorees in each category for submission to NCRC NAHRO.
NCRC will then select 1 entry per age category to be submitted for national competition.

 

National Prizes:

National honorees will be selected by a Blue Ribbon panel of judges to be assembled by National NAHRO staff. National honorees will be officially announced during Housing America Month in October.  All eight NAHRO regions will be represented in the calendar.   

The 12 national winners will each receive a $100 Visa gift card. The national grand prize winner will be awarded an iPad. The grand prize winner and one member of his or her family will also be provided with transportation to and from and lodging at NAHRO’s Washington Conference in Washington, D.C. where he or she will be honored. The grand prize winner will also receive a framed copy of their original artwork and will tour Capitol Hill.
