K-12 students invited to share vision of home in celebration of KHRC's 20th anniversary, National Homeownership Month

 

TOPEKA Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) launched a statewide art contest today, inviting K-12 students to share their visions on the theme: WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO ME? The contest aims to raise awareness of the importance of home and the connection between quality, affordable housing and healthy families and communities. The initiative commemorates KHRC's 20th anniversary and winners will be celebrated during National Homeownership Month, an annual campaign recognizing the benefits of homeownership.

 

“Home is more than shelter,” said Ryan Vincent, KHRC’s Executive Director. “It represents safety, community, a sense of belonging, and so much more. As we reflect on two decades of expanding housing opportunities across the state, we welcome our youngest Kansans to share a vision of home for future generations.”

 

The contest is open to any K-12 Kansas student. Entrants must submit an original, two-dimensional 8.5 by 11-inch piece of artwork (painting, drawing, or photograph), along with a completed entry form.

 

A KHRC committee will review submissions and select winner(s) to be displayed in the Kansas State Capitol and at the 2023 Kansas Housing Conference Welcome Reception. Submissions will be accepted until May 1. Winners will be announced on May 15 via email and on KHRC's website.

 

Methods of entry include:

 

1.  Mail: Kansas Housing Resources Corporation at: 611 S Kansas Ave., Suite 300, Topeka, KS 66603

2.  Email: ArtContest@kshousingcorp.org

3.  Online submission form

 

Please Note: For online submissions, please complete the online entry form with parent/guardian signature and upload your art submission.

 

For email submissions, please also download, complete, and have a parent/guardian sign the digital entry form PDF by navigating to Tools > Fill and Sign > Sign Yourself to sign the document and email it along with your submission to: ArtContest@kshousingcorp.org.

KHRC was established in 2003 and serves as the state’s housing finance agency, administering essential housing and community programs to serve Kansans. Among other initiatives, it manages the state’s First Time Homebuyer Program and Home Loan Guarantee for Rural Kansas, which expand homeownership opportunities for Kansans.
