“Meaning of Home” Contest

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Calling all Grade 4, 5 and 6 students.

There are three weeks left in the Genworth Financial/Habitat for Humanity “Meaning of Home” contest. It’s a great educational experience for students and it supports a great cause.

Here are the details of the contest:

· Students in grades 4,5 and 6 can submit their choice of written composition, essay or poem describing what ‘home’ means to them.

· There will be a First Place Winner and five Runner Ups.

· The First Place winner will:
Take part in the ultimate gift - a new Habitat home for a deserving family. Genworth will donate $60,000 towards the building of a new Habitat home in a community of the winner's choice. As well as receive a high-performance Dell laptop with 80 GB hard drive, 3 GB RAM and an extended warranty, loaded with Microsoft Office.

· Five Runner Ups will each:
Help a family to get a home of their own. Genworth will donate $5,000 to a Habitat affiliate of the winner's choice - which will support the building of a new home in that community. As well as receive a $100 gift certificate to Chapters Indigo.
