What Home Means to Me Poster Contest

Sylvester Housing Authority is gearing up to participate in NAHRO’s “Housing America poster campaign.” We are so excited to be able to offer our youngest residents the chance to express themselves artistically. Sylvester Housing Authority will begin offering a safe space for children grades K through 12 to come in and show what home means to them. Sylvester Housing Authority will provide the paper and all art supplies, all we ask is that you bring your children so they can create.

We will have five (5) art sessions. The dates and locations are:

  • February 28 – 104 Hamilton Circle
  • March 6 – 804 Henderson Street
  • March 13 – 411 N. Jefferson
  • March 20 – 104 Hamilton Circle
  • March 27 – 804 Henderson Street

A first-place winner for each of the following categories will be selected: Elementary, Middle School and High School. Our three first-place winners will have their art sent to a regional competition. If any of our students art is selected at the regional competition, their art will go on to compete at the national level. The national competition receives poster from across the United States, thirteen winners are chosen and their art will be displayed in the 2021 “What Home Means to Me Calendar.” Winning pieces will also be framed and returned to children.  

The Sylvester Housing Authority children who attend an art session will receive snacks and a free gift of art supplies. Sylvester Housing Authority will also enter all families who participate in a raffle. The more sessions your children attend, the better your chance to win the raffle prize.

We are looking forward to seeing you and your children at our art event.
