Meaning of Home 2024

January 8th 2024 - February 23 2024

The Meaning of Home is an annual writing contest for students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada. Students across Canada are invited to submit a poem or essay explaining what home means to them. It’s a great way to engage your students in an interactive and fun way, and it teaches youth the importance of safe, affordable housing.

Do you know any students from grades 4 to 6 who love writing AND helping others? Let them know about the Meaning of Home for the chance to change a family’s life. The winner of each grade will win a $30,000 grant for their local Habitat, among other prizes! Learn more about the writing contest:
