Join the Fair Housing Council of Oregon as we celebrate our 21st Annual Fair Housing Poster Contest! Every year FHCO holds a poster contest open to students in grades 1-8. This year’s theme is “Everyone is Welcome in My Neighborhood”. Ten contest winners will receive cash awards and the Grand Prize winning artwork will be printed on thousands of posters and distributed throughout Oregon! The poster contest deadline is March 15, 2019.

FHCO works to stop illegal discrimination in housing. It is against the law for landlords, Realtors, and lenders to discriminate based on race, religion, gender, disability and familial status (families with children). Did you know that before discrimination against families with children became illegal in 1988 more than 60% of landlords refused to rent to families with children? Familial status discrimination remains one of the most common types of discrimination in Oregon today. The poster contest is a great way to teach children about the importance of Fair Housing laws and the value of diverse neighborhoods.

Poster Guidelines: Posters must contain wording that addresses the theme. Posters must measure 11" x 17" on poster paper, poster board or similar material. Design the poster so it is horizontal. Materials used should be crayons, colored pencils, magic markers, tempera paint, pastels, or chalk. Please do not use glitter or glue.
