THE WEEK IN HOUSING

RECENT NEWS & UPDATES FROM MINNESOTA NAHRO

 The cold weather may keep us indoors but we have a fun activity for your younger residents.  Our annual “What Home Means To Me” Poster Contest is underway plus we are accepting nominations for our Carol Schultz Educational Scholarships.

 

Showcase Your Local Artist in our Annual Poster Contest

Submit posters by March 25th

Join us for our annual national poster contest for youth who live in affordable housing owned or administered by NAHRO member agencies. Each piece of art shares the children’s thoughts on the theme of “What Home Means to Me.”  Minnesota NAHRO encourages our members to hold local contests and send in their winners from each age category to compete in the Minnesota NAHRO contest.  The top three winners in each age category is then sent on to NCRC.  NCRC picks one winner from each category to National NAHRO to compete in the national contest.

The scholarships are for residents of publicly-owned housing units or participants in a rent assistance program & may be used for any accredited post-secondary education program, except for graduate or post-graduate programs. This award is dedicated to our very own Carol Schultz of Duluth HRA.
