The National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) is proud to kick off the annual art/calendar contest. We anticipate that more than 5,000 children, elderly and residents with special needs nationwide will be participating in the calendar art contest this year.

We have added a subtheme to reinforce a more positive use of time and to encourage a broader range of submissions. The underlying message for the contest will continue to have a drug-free theme but we also wanted to open the door for more avenues of expression. The subtheme for the 2020 contest is My Voice Will Be Heard: Speaking the Language of Love.

Below are contest rules and tips from various Affordable Housing Management Associations (AHMAs), property management companies, and on-site property managers on how to hold an art contest. If you require additional information on NAHMA’s national finalists contest, please contact Brenda Moser at the NAHMA office at 703-683-8630, ext. 114.
