NATIONAL WRITING CONTEST LAUNCHES FOR STUDENTS

IN GRADES 4, 5 AND 6

Students can help Habitat for Humanity Chatham-Kent build homes by entering

Chatham-Kent, ON – 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.

Launched on Friday, January 11th, 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.
