News

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland is ringing in its 25th anniversary with a contest.

The organization is dedicated to building affordable housing for people who may otherwise have a hard time achieving home ownership.

Since the founding of the local chapter, Habitat has built 52 homes in the Portland area.  A 53rd house is near completion and six more are slated for construction in Freeport and Westbrook.

News Center's Lee Nelson recently spoke with Habitat's Stefanie Millette about plans to celebrate those accomplishments.

Millette said Habitat is holding a 25th Anniversary Creativity Contest.  Children between the ages of 5 and 18 are asked to express what home means to them through either writing or art. 

All participants will receive a certificate of achievement.  The winners will get the chance to publicly display their submissions at Habitat events.

The contest runs through December 5.  Click here to register with Habitat for Humanity.
