Meaning of Home Writing Contest
National Writing Contest
For Grades 4, 5 And 6
January 4 to February 19, 2021
Grades 4, 5, and 6 students in Sault Ste. Marie & Area are invited to submit a poem or essay explaining what home means to them. It’s a great way for students to engage in an interactive and fun way, and it teaches youth the importance of safe, affordable housing.
Each entry results in a $10 donation to Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie & Area and the winner in each grade gets to direct a $30,000 grant to a Habitat Sault build.
Nine runners-up (3 per grade) will also get to direct a $10,000 grant towards a local Habitat build.
Additional prizes include an iPad, and class pizza party for each of the grand prize winners.
Teachers can sign-up for a teacher account so you can easily upload multiple essays, track your students’ impact and receive regular contest updates.
Parents are also encouraged to have their children participate!
