Announcing the winners of Habitat Build Challenge
Thank you to everyone who competed, voted and visited the
website in this year’s Habitat for Humanity Build
It was a fantastic first year with over 1000 budding builders enrolling to enter. We were blown away by the quality and imagination of so many of the Habitat house builds, that ranged from a self-sustaining cottage to a flying fortress. The wonderful descriptions of the builds were an enlightening postscript to all the creations, and were amusing and thought provoking in equal measure. It was great to see so many children taking the time to relate their builds to our mission of providing safe, decent and affordable housing throughout the world.
There was fierce completion within all age categories for the winners prizes, with 9,571 votes received across the builds. Thank you for all your efforts in obtaining votes and sharing your builds with family and friends.
So, it’s time to announce our winners and say CONGRATULATIONS!
