Press Release: Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners
Crawfordville, Florida – The Wakulla County Housing Authority is celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act of 1968. The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, familial status and disability.
In celebration of the Fair Housing Act and in an effort to create awareness about the importance of Fair Housing, Wakulla County is conducting a coloring contest throughout the Wakulla County Elementary and Middle Schools, which includes any public, private, or home schools.
The contest is only for students in K-6th grade and they must be residents of Wakulla County. Participating students must submit an entry form along with a drawing to represent what “Fair Housing” means.
Prizes will be presented to the top three most creative drawings during the April 15, 2013 Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners Meeting. All entries are due no later than Monday, April 1, 2013 and should be mailed to the Wakulla County Housing Authority, Attn: Coloring Contest, P.O. Box 13408, Tallahassee, FL 32317.
