What Home Means to Me Poster Contest

Since 2008, this contest has recognized the amazing art of children who live in affordable housing across the country. Each piece of art visually shares the child's thoughts on what their home means to them. Each year, hundreds of children, ages 5-18, participate in the contest. Their heartfelt messages about their homes underscore the importance of the work that housers and community development professionals do.

We want our Resident Youth to participate. We will provide your art supplies if needed. Please call our office or email to let us know you need art supplies.

Visit for more details, rules, and how to enter the contest.

As part of NAHRO's Housing America campaign, a poster contest is held each year for children residing in affordable housing and community developments. Posters reflect the national theme of "What Home Means to Me."

Age Categories: Elementary (K - 5th Grade), Middle (6th - 8th Grade), and High School (9th-12th Grade)

Details for next year's contest will be provided on our website Calendar and News. For email and/or text updates, sign up here.
