Youth residing in HAND member properties are eligible for our Annual Children’s Art 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 eight runners-up will each receive a $25 gift certificate. The contest is open to children who attend elementary school (ages 5-12). Artwork should reflect this year’s theme, “Homes Across the Region.” HAND members are working to transform communities throughout Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia and Maryland, so we’re look forward to seeing your artwork representing your home, as well as the state or city where you live! Community Program staff should mail the top five (5) entries from each property to: Heather Raspberry, Executive Director, HAND, PO Box 48386, Washington, D.C. 20002. The deadline to submit an entry is March 15, 2013 at 5:00 PM. Late entries will not be accepted. Download the Annual Children’s Art Contest and guidelines here.
