TALLAHASSEE — On April 1, the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) announced the launch of a statewide art contest, inviting kids and teens to submit their visions on the theme: What does home mean to you? The contest aims to increase awareness on the importance of having a home by encouraging kids across the state to use their imaginations to illustrate the meaning of what their home truly means. A Florida Housing committee will review all designs and select the top 40 to be prominently displayed in the Florida Housing Finance Corporation building in Tallahassee in honor of National Homeownership Month in June. The deadline to submit artwork is May 3.
“We are excited to kick off this statewide art contest at a time when having a place to call home is more important now than ever before,” said Trey Price, Executive Director of Florida Housing Finance Corporation. “Leading up to National Homeownership Month, Florida Housing wanted to bring back this fun initiative to engage with kids, while also increasing awareness of the need and significance of quality, affordable housing for all Floridians.”
