Junior Artist Competition

Encouraging stories through artistic expression

Every November, Albertans celebrate Housing Month in celebration of the opportunity to provide and create stability, support families, improve lives and encourage personal growth. We want to recommit ourselves to the idea that a safe, secure home is the foundation to build a better life.

In light of this celebration, we want to know what home means to our youngest stakeholder group: our children. Through the Junior Artist Competition, we can encourage our children to tell their stories through a personal creative expression.

About the Competition

The competition will open in September and close at the end of October. It is open to children and dependents of CRH tenants, applicants and subsidy recipients only. This FREE contest is open to the following age categories: 0 to 6, 7 to 12 and 13 to 18. We will award prizes to the top three submissions from each category, with artistic displays at Capital Region Housing office and other in other print and electronic media
