The “What Homes Means to Me” poster contest is for youth, Kindergarten through Grade 12, who live in affordable and assisted housing. The NCRC NAHRO regional council will recognize our region’s three winners (one from each age group) at the regional conference in Chicago, IL on to be announced rescheduled date. Those 3 winners will then be sent on to the national level for consideration.

(Send poster contest entries to your State Chapters for selection process and the top 3 state chapter winners from each age group will be forwarded to NCRC NAHRO for regional selection. Submissions sent directly to National NAHRO will be disqualified.)

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 contest is a collaborative effort of NAHRO’s chapter/state, regional, and national organizations. National honorees are selected from chapter/state-level winning entries.

How to Enter

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.
