“Celebrate Music, Arts and Crafts” is the theme for this year’s art and poster calendar contest held by the Pennsylvania Affordable Housing Management Association and sponsored by the National Affordable Housing Management Association.
This is the 28th year that NAHMA has held a drug-free themed art and poster contest. Betty Rodkey, left, is shown displaying a poster that she designed for the contest.
Rodkey resides at Leonard Court Apartments, a complex that is under the management of Central Pennsylvania Community Action Inc. All contestants submitting artwork must reside in a community that is a current member of PAHMA.
The contest is open to children, adults 55 years and older, and disabled or special needs residents of affordable housing communities. Also shown is Shelia Williams, site manager of Leonard Court Apartments.
PAHMA and other affordable housing management associations across the country could each submit three entries for the national contest. From these entries, winners will be chosen to appear in the 2015 NAHMA calendar.
Rodkey’s entry was one of the winning selections for the western Pennsylvania area and was then submitted to NAHMA for the national competition. This is the second year Rodkey has submitted an entry for the contest; last year her poster was given Honorable Mention and was featured in the NAHMA 2014 Drug-Free Calendar.
