Washington, D.C.-Area K-12 Students Showcase Artistic Talent in “What Home Means to Me” Poster Contest

Each year, since 2016, ASLA has been a proud supporter of the What Home Means to Me” poster contest. Sponsored by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), this contest, now in its eleventh year, recognizes 24 works of art by children ages 5 to 18 who live in HUD-assisted housing across the country. Each piece visually shares the child’s thoughts on what their home means to them. ASLA served on a panel of judges that chose 13 winners that the 2019 “What Home Means to Me” calendar will feature. NAHRO will announce the winners this winter.

All winners will receive cash prizes. The grand prizewinner will have their art featured on the calendar cover and receive a trip to the NAHRO Washington Conference (April 7-9, 2019) to meet NAHRO membership and his or her Congressional representatives.

In 2019, ASLA will extend its support by providing each participating student with a letter of encouragement, Certificate of Recognition, and copy of YOUR LAND. Additionally, ASLA will invite the grand prize winner to a private lunch and tour of ASLA headquarters. If the grand prize winner resides in your region, we will encourage your ASLA Chapter to explore opportunities to further engage that student.

We look forward to your continued support of Career Discovery and Diversity at ASLA. Please direct questions to Lisa J. Jennings, manager of career discovery and diversity, at
