Power of Children. Power of Words. Power of Home.

Everyone Can Make A Difference. 
TORONTO, Oct. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Genworth Canada is calling upon young students 
to help make the dream of homeownership possible for more Canadian families in 
need. 
On October 10, Genworth Canada launches its sixth annual Meaning of Home 
Contest in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada. The contest invites grade 
4, 5 and 6 students across Canada to submit a written essay about the meaning 
of home for a chance to direct $60,000 to a Habitat for Humanity build of 
their choice in Canada and win a pizza party for their entire school! 
View the Meaning of Home video at www.youtube.com/meaningofhome to hear 
first-hand what this experience has meant for past participants, organizers 
and supporters. 
"All of us at Genworth Canada take great pride in our Meaning of Home 
contest," says Brian Hurley, chairman and CEO of Genworth Canada. "It's 
extremely gratifying to know we are not only helping inspire children to write 
but we are also teaching them that every little gesture can make a difference." 
There are many more great prizes to be won, and for the second year in a row, 
Genworth Canada is donating $5 to Habitat for each entry submitted. 
According to Habitat there are currently more than 1.5 million Canadian 
families without safe, decent and affordable housing. "Our collaboration 
with Genworth Canada has been instrumental in helping our affiliates 
throughout the country build more homes and help more families achieve their 
dream of homeownership," said Stewart Hardacre, president and CEO of Habitat 
for Humanity Canada. "So spread the word and help us beat last year's record 
of 3,200 entries!"

deadline for submissions is November 9 and the winner will be announced in 
January 2013.
