Students in Oxford, Middlesex, Elgin and Perth counties can help Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario build homes by entering

Students across the country have an opportunity to help a family in Oxford, Middlesex, Elgin or Perth county become a Habitat homeowner, thanks to Meaning of Home contest, a national writing contest in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada. Launching today, the Meaning of Home contest asks students in Grades 4, 5 and 6 to share what home means to them.

In the last 12 years, over 50,000 students have shared what homes has meant to them. Thanks to their inspiring words, and Genworth Canada’s generous support, the Meaning of Home contest has raised over $1 million to build homes across Canada for families in need of decent and affordable housing.

In 2015, Grade 4 student John Latosinsky from Lester B Pearson School for the Arts in London was the Grand Prize Winner. John won a grant of $25,000 that went to help Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario build a home in London, Ontario with new Habitat homeowners Juan Jose and Michelle and their two children.

Three grand prize winners, one for each grade, will have the opportunity to direct a grant of $25,000 to a local Habitat for Humanity. Nine runners up will receive a grant of $5,000 to the Habitat build of their choice. For every contest entry, a donation of $10 will be made to that student’s local Habitat, ensuring every student can help build Habitat homes in their community.

THIS CHART SHOWS THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES RECEIVED AS OF JANUARY 28 2019

“As a father and grandfather, I believe in the value of getting children involved in the community and teaching them even though they are young, they have the power to effect positive change,” said Mark Rodgers, Habitat for Humanity Canada President and CEO. “We need to empower youth to know that they can change this world for the better.”

The Meaning of Home contest is open to all Grades 4, 5 and 6 students across Canada. Submissions will be accepted online between January 7 and February 18, and winners will be announced in April. More information on how to enter, as well as details on prizing, can be found at www.meaningofhome.ca.

“As a founding sponsor of the Meaning of Home contest, we have seen its positive impact grow year after year” says Stuart Levings, President and CEO of Genworth Canada. “By encouraging students to become more engaged, we are teaching them to become more compassionate community members, all while educating them on the need for more affordable housing in Canada. We are proud supporters of Habitat for Humanity and this contest, which is helping to raise awareness about affordable housing concerns amongst our future leaders.”
