Contest Winner Announced

BERLIN – Each year state and local Realtor® associations sponsor fair housing poster contests with local elementary schools. These contests generally include a specific theme for the year and incorporate the ideas of the 1968 Fair Housing Act. The Coastal Association of Realtors’ Community Relations committee met earlier this year to choose three calendar drawing submissions from over 300 entries submitted by elementary school students in Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties.

Of the final three submitted to MAR, Fiona Pando of Worcester Preparatory School’s drawing was selected by Maryland Association of Realtors to be printed in the 2014 Fair Housing Calendars. Later in April, Pando will travel to Baltimore to be recognized by Gov. Martin O’Malley.    

To pick up your copy of the 2013 Fair Housing Calendar, stop by the CAR office at 314 Franklin Ave. #106, Berlin, Md. 21811 or call 410-641-4409 and ask an associate to send a calendar to you.

“Coastal Association of Realtors® recognizes the importance of promoting Fair Housing Month and what it stands for,” said Sheila Dodson, CAR Association Executive. “Our code of ethics and professional standards set our realtors apart from other real estate practitioners.  We proactively stay up to date on the latest fair housing information so we can educate our members on how they can best serve their clients.”
