Build a House, Build a Dream 2016

2015 Build a House winner
Build a House judging

Calling all fibuild-a-housefth grade builders, artists, architects, and engineers! Along with presenting sponsor Fox & Roach Charities, Habitat for Humanity of Chester County is excited to announce the 13th annual Build a House, Build a Dream! Contest for Kids.

In this competition, fifth grade students in the Delaware Valley work individually or in pairs to build their own three-dimensional, model dream homes. Students bring these models to our contest on the morning of Saturday, March 19, 2016 at Church Farm School in Exton for display and judging by professional architects, engineers, builders, and designers. There will be three rounds of judging with contestants being dismissed after each round. Contestants will arrive around 8:30AM and the first round will start at approximately 9:15AM. All three rounds and awards will last until approximately 1PM. The deadline to register is Friday, February 26, 2016.

Contest Rules:

These three dimensional models are only limited by students’ imaginations! In previous years, students have created model houses designed to withstand tsunamis, houses based on spaceships and bongo drums, houses made entirely of pencils and pasta, energy efficient houses, and environmentally friendly homes.  All children receive recognition for their efforts and the top winners earn prizes.

  • Models must be three-dimensional and fit on a base no larger than 2ft x 3ft.
  • Students must prepare one written description of about 100 words or less explaining why this is their idea of a dream house and highlighting any interesting features. This paragraph will be displayed with their homes.
  • Students must be prepared to discuss their entry with contest judges.
  • Model homes will be judged on the following criteria:
    • Originality and creativity
    • Use of materials
    • Appearance and design
    • Independent effort (this is a contest for kids, not their parents!)

If your child is working in a pair, only one registration form per model house must be filled out including both students’ names, addresses, and emails. Please include complete information for both participants!

Participants will receive a confirmation email with additional information after registering. Entries will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, as space constraints may limit the amount of entrants accepted. All entries must be received by Friday, February 26.
