To show children and their families the importance of having a safe, decent and affordable home, Genworth Canada, a partner of Habitat for Humanity Canada since 2000, has committed to the 9th consecutive run of the national Meaning of Home contest.
The Meaning of Home contest challenges youth in Grades 4 – 6 to write a short composition or poem that expresses what they “love” most about their home, with the winner receiving a $60,000 grant to be directed to the Habitat affiliate of their choice.
The contest runs from October 1st to November 10th 2014 and for each Meaning of Home essay entered by a student from our region, Genworth will donate $5 to Habitat for Humanity Wood Buffalo. Additionally, the winner will receive a $60,000 grant for their local habitat affiliate, an iPad and a pizza party for their entire school. There will also be 5 runner-ups who will receive $5,000 grants directed to their local Habitat affiliate, iPod touches and classroom pizza parties.
