11th consecutive Meaning of Home Contest begins

For the 11th consecutive year, Genworth Canada is asking students in grades 4, 5, and 6 to consider what home means to them. Through the Meaning of Home contest, students have the opportunity to share their stories, videos and poems in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada and local Habitat affiliates across the country, including Habitat for Humanity Yukon. The contest began October 10 and ends November 30, 2017.

Genworth Canada awards the winning student a $50,000 donation towards a Habitat build of their choice, in addition to a $1,000 donation to their school.  To help Habitat for Humanity provide opportunities for families in need of safe, decent housing, there are 10 second place grants of $5,000 toward their local Habitat. In addition, Genworth will make a $10 donation, to local Habitats across the country, for every entry received.

For more information on contest rules, or to submit an entry, visit www.meaningofhome.ca or contact Habitat for Humanity Yukon at (867) 456-4349 or [email protected].  The contest winner and runners-up will be announced in February of 2018.
