"What Home Means To Me" Poster Contest

IL NAHRO is pleased to announce that the annual “What Home Means to Me” poster contest for children from kindergarten through Grade 12 who live in affordable and assisted housing is officially underway. The State Chapter will submit the Illinois winning posters from each age category to the regional council of NAHRO for regional judging. The three state winners will be recognized during the IL Annual Conference. Submissions sent directly to national NAHRO will be disqualified.

The deadline for submission of posters for IL NAHRO is Friday, March 31, 2017.

One grand prize and 12 national winners will be selected in September and featured in the 2016 What Home Means to Me calendar which highlights the importance of safe, quality, and affordable housing for not only children, but all families, veterans, seniors and persons with disabilities.

Winners from all eight NAHRO regions will be selected. The national grand prize winner will be awarded an iPad, honored at NAHRO’s Washington Conference in Washington, D.C., tour Capitol Hill, and receive a framed copy of their original artwork. The 12 national winners will be awarded each with a $100 Visa gift card.
