The Meaning of Home is a national writing contest in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada that asks students in Grade 4, 5 and 6 what home means to them. There are three grand prize winners, one from each grade, who have won a $30,000 grant towards their local Habitat for Humanity build. Nine runners up have won a $10,000 grant towards their local Habitat.
The Meaning of Home contest would not be possible without the generous support of founding sponsor, Genworth Canada.
