Habitat for Humanity’s Meaning of Home contest is back again and the Dauphin Chapter is requesting local participation.

Last year saw a record 216 submissions from our area and a National runner up in grade 4 student, Tiana Sanko, from Gilbert Plains.

As an incentive to take part, the Dauphin and District Chamber of Commerce has donated $200 of Chamber bucks to go out to four lucky participating students and four participating classrooms. 

Every entry to the contest earns a $10 donation for their local chapter.

The contest, which is for students in grades 4, 5 and 6, asks the students to share what home means to them through a poem or short essay.

A grand prize winner from each grade will receive a $30,000 grant for their local chapter and then 3 runners-up from each grade will get $10,000. The contest runs until February 19th and submissions can be made by clicking here.
