The Meaning of Home writing contest is back! Starting in January, we’re asking students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 what home means to them for the chance to win a $30,000 grant for Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region! That’s not all — for every submission, $10 will also be donated to your local Habitat. For more details, visit meaningofhome.ca.
Did you know that a runner up in the 2020 Meaning of Home writing contest was from Peterborough? Earlier this year, grade 6 student, Siena, won $10,000 to support Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region’s building of 41 decent, affordable condos in Peterborough.
“What does home mean to me? Home to me is a place where I can relax, laugh, cry and be myself. At home I don’t need to act like someone or something I’m not. Home is a place where I can be myself and feel good about it. And most importantly feel safe.” You can read more of Siena’s winning entry by clicking here.
