"Home is a place of many things. My poster is showing what home means to me; things like swimming, fun playing outside, and also my family (my mom, dad, brother, and my grandma). Also when me and mom have girls day it's usually at home or somewhere I choose. Home can be anything you want it to be but it is always my place of security and I am around people who loves me." -by Ka'Mani Kannya Shore
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)
