Thank you to everyone who took part in the competition!
What does home mean to you?
Over the past year or so, our physical homes have become so much more than a place to rest and recuperate as well as a space to learn and grow. We have watched the world outside and explored from the safety of our screens, embarking on adventures from our living rooms and taking a role of both sheltered and sheltering.Discover the winning entries here
If you found yourself needing to travel home during the past year, maybe your adventures have looked a little different this year but maybe that helped to make the homecoming even more sweet. Maybe If you sought to build a home for yourself this year whether online or offline and maybe this has presented some unique challenges and interesting twists to the story.
Whatever it is, we want to hear your response to the question, WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO YOU?
You can write us a story, a letter, a poem, a play; whatever it is, we cannot wait to read them.
