Housing America Announces 2022 National Poster Contest Winners

December 20, 2021

During NAHRO’s Online National Conference and Exhibition in October, 13 winners were announced for the 2022 Housing America “What Home Means to Me” poster and calendar contest. The contest is part of the Housing America public awareness campaign, which seeks to raise national awareness of the need for and importance of safe, quality, affordable housing through education, advocacy, and empowerment. As the country and world continues to grapple with the impacts of the coronavirus, the importance of having a home gained renewed recognition.  

The national winners’ artwork will be featured in the 2022 “What Home Means to Me” calendar, which is shared with all members of Congress, local leaders, and the NAHRO membership. Each winner also receives a $100 Visa gift card. The art of this year’s grand prize winner, Kendon, from the Bristol Redevelopment and Housing Authority, will be featured on the cover. Kendon will receive an iPad and a framed copy of her poster. She and a guardian will also be provided with transportation and lodging to visit Washington D.C. at a future date. 

This year, our panel of judges consisted of the Senior Advisor on Rental Assistance in the Office of the Secretary at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Peggy Bailey, CEO of the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans Kathryn Monet, and Deputy Editor of Affordable Housing Finance Donna Kimura.
