DAVENPORT, IOWA (September 15, 2023) We are looking for thirty contestants to compete for the crown! This year’s competition is SUPER easy. NO performance or costumes required! I repeat: NO performance required! The winner of the fundraising contest will receive two tickets to the Mr and Ms Habitat event on October 14 and will be crowned that evening.

It’s not all about winning, it’s about showing your support for Habitat. Even if you're thinking "I won't win," we still want you! We appreciate your participation and help celebrating thirty years of building with thirty amazing, Habitat-loving contestants!
