DEADLINE EXTENDED!
HAND’s Children’s Essay Contest

Due to local school closings and the impacts they will have on community programs, we have extended the contest deadline to April 3.

Youth residing in HAND member properties are eligible for our Children’s Essay Contest with a chance to win a $250 cash prize! In addition, the winner’s community program will receive a cash prize of $250 for administering the contest and runners-up will receive a $25 gift certificate!

This year we are hosting an essay competition themed, If I Were the Mayor. We encourage you to engage your students in uncovering what kind of region they envision for their future. The contest is intended to help our youth reflect on their experiences and explore the legacy they see for themselves and our communities if indeed they were responsible for the outcomes for an entire jurisdiction.

The deadline for submission of entries is Close of Business on April 3, 2020. Please direct questions to cbattle@handhousing.org.
