Our local contest winners each received a Winner’s Certificate and a $25 gift card, and the other local entrants received a Certificate of Participation. All local entries have been sent to Michigan NAHRO for judging in the state contest, after which entries will go to the regional “What Home Means to Me” Poster Contest; regional contest winners will be sent to the national contest in Washington, D.C.
