Coldwell Banker Names Contest Winners
Samantha Tennant, a seven-year-old first grade student from Chicago, and Alex Furrh, a 10-year-old fifth grade student from Wheaton, were two of the three grand-prize winners of the second annual Coldwell Banker “My Home: The American Dream” contest. Each student won $2,000 for their contest submissions. The winners were announced at the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation’s International Business Conference on March 6 in Las Vegas, and their entries can be viewed at the “Side Door” in the Video Library at coldwellbanker.com.
The nationwide competition, in conjunction with Scholastic Professional Magazines’ Custom Media Group, asked students to explain through images or words how they make their house, apartment, condominium, or other living quarters, a “home.” The contest yielded nearly 2,200 submissions, more than double the number of entries received last year. The projects were judged on creativity, originality, overall quality and effort. In addition to the three grand-prize winners, 50 finalists each were awarded $100 dollars.
