Meaning of Home writing contest is back!

Boy writing on paper

The Meaning of Home contest is back for its 15th year on January 3rd! The contest invites students in grades 4, 5, and 6 to submit a poem or essay explaining what home means to them. The Meaning of Home contest, in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada, is a great opportunity for students to learn about giving back to their community and the importance of having a safe home while improving their creative writing skills and raising money for Habitat for Humanity Niagara.

The Meaning of Home contest is an activity that students will see as meaningful. It will challenge them to think creatively about a topic that directly impacts their lives—the meaning of home—and ultimately improve their writing skills.

Each local submission entered in the contest provides Habitat for Humanity Niagara with a $10 donation from Sagen™ 1, founding sponsor of the contest. Three grand prize winners, who will receive $30,000 for their local Habitat, and 9 runner-up winners, who will receive $10,000 for their local Habitat, will also receive prizes for themselves and their class thanks to our generous contest sponsors.
