Homeless Sensitivity Poster and Essay Contest is Open

Share on:

The Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust “Homeless Sensitivity Poster Contest” and "Homeless Sensitivity Essay Contest" are accepting submissions. 

From TikTok and Instagram videos to essays and posters, Miami-Dade County Public School students are encouraged to get creative and think of ways they can make real change in their community.

This year’s contest also invites students to create short videos to help educate others about ways they can help the homeless or those facing housing insecurity. Winning students and teachers will receive up to $300 in prizes. The deadline for all poster and essay submissions is Friday, January 27, 2023, at 5 p.m.

The Trust created the contest to build awareness, understanding, and compassion among students for homeless individuals after the murder of Norris Gaynor. Norris Gaynor was one of three homeless men attacked during an early-morning assault on January 12, 2006, by South Florida teens.
