We would like to share some very important information with you concerning the NAHRO Housing America Campaign competition “What Home Means To Me” poster contest. The poster contest is held each year for children residing in affordable housing and community developments owned or administered by NAHRO member agencies. It is a collaborative effort of NAHRO’s chapter/state, regional, and national organizations. National honorees are selected from chapter/state-level winning entries.
Elementary: K to 5th grade
Middle: 6th to 8th grade
High: 9th to 12th grade
The State Association holds a poster contest submitted by local Housing Authorities like ours and selects a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner for each category. The winning posters from the Biloxi Housing Authority are submitted to compete in the regional competition where three winners are selected (one from each category). The regional winners posters are submitted to NAHRO for the national contest where 13 national winners will be selected.
The grand prize cover winner will also receive an iPad and a framed copy of their original artwork. The cover winner and one legal guardian will also receive a tour of Capitol Hill and attend NAHRO’s Washington Conference in Washington, D.C. where he or she will be honored. The 13 national winners will each receive a $100 Visa gift card.
The Biloxi Housing Authority will provide our future award-winning artists with 22” X 28” poster boards and colored markers for the competition. Please contact your Manager to pick up an entry form, application and the supplies for each child in your household that wants to participate.
