What Home Means To Me Poster Contest

NAHRO is looking for the next 13 young artists to feature in the 2023 calendar. Applications for the contest are now online!

Our youth are invited to enter. Questions on the process or how to enter?

Call our office 919-269-6404.

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.

Please note: NAHRO will not accept submissions from individual Housing Authorities

Any submissions sent directly to NAHRO will be disqualified.
