"Home is a place of safe haven and judgement-free zone. Home is my own little world where I love to make homemade lip gloss and lashes. Home is a place where I share my thoughts and feelings. Home is not a place, it's a feeling. Home is where I play, laugh, cry, and learn. Home is a place full of love and family that supports you. Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to. There is nothing more important than a good, safe, and secure home. Home is not just a place you live, but a place that lives in you." Nadia Perry
WHAT HOME MEANS TO ME - Poster Contest
The annual "What Home Means to Me" poster contest is part of NAHRO Housing America's campaign to inform the public and decision-makers about the need to meet the country's affordable housing and community development challenges. Posters are first judged at the local level and winners are sent to the next level, Carolinas Council of Housing Redevelopment and Codes Officials (CCHRCO). The winning posters from that round go on to compete at the regional level, through the Southeastern Regional Council of NAHRO. The SERC-NAHRO regional winners are then sent to the national level to be judged. NAHRO then selects 13 winning posters from submissions throughout the United States. Selected posters appear in the "What Homes Means to Me" calendar and the artists receive gift cards as recognition for their efforts.
Contest participation is open to all children in grades K-12 residing in affordable housing assisted directly, supported under community development, or participants in affordable housing programs administered by a NAHRO member authority (i.e., public or Section 8-assisted housing CDBG, HOME, LIHTC).
CCHRCO selects a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winner for each category:
- Elementary (K to 5th),
- Middle School (6th to 8th) and
- High School (9th to 12th)
