2017 Fair Housing Month Poster Contest: Won't You Be My Neighbor?

It’s not too early to be thinking about this year’s Fair Housing Month Poster Contest! Details are now available for this year’s contest. Please share this information with teachers, schools and daycare programs in SPAAR’s area. It is a great way to start a discussion about Fair Housing and Equal Housing Opportunities, and a fun way for individual students and classes to be eligible to win prizes. The Fair Housing Month Poster Contest is sponsored by SPAAR’s Diversity Committee.

2017 Calendars featuring posters from last year’s contest are available at any SPAAR location, for a requested donation of only $5.00 (while supplies last). Your donation supports efforts to promote diversity in homeownership and in the real estate industry.
