Essay contest now open to win free apartment for one year

Locals now have the opportunity to enter a competition to win free use of a one bedroom apartment for one year.

“Rents have increased quickly in Seattle and it has created a strain on many budgets. We can’t ease everyone’s housing budget, but hopefully someone’s situation could be drastically improved,” writes the anonymous building owner who will donate their unit to the winner.

In order to enter, applicants must submit an essay (under 350 words) in answer to the question, “if you did not have to pay rent for a year, what would it allow you to do?”

Applicants may also want to explore some of the topics mentioned below:

Housing is intensely personal and consumes a large percentage of income. What if that constraint didn’t exist for a year–what else could be done with those resources? Would you save the money, pay off debt, go to school? Would you quit a part time job and focus on something else–how would you change how you spend your time?

The winner will receive free use of a one bedroom apartment for one year located in either Ballard or Queen Anne. “It has wood floors and a laundry in the building. It won’t be in a shiny new tower, but it will be a clean, comfortable place to live,” says the owner.

The essays will be reviewed by a selection committee and the winner will be notified via email. Applicants must be legal US Residents and at least 18 years of age. Utilities will be paid by the resident.

  1. I myself study at the faculty of creative, but it did not help to avoid annoying written tasks. In fact, now it is not difficult to choose normal professionals to write an essay, and everyone can, it is just necessary to refer to the professionals, not amateurs, then there should be no problems. It is also good that my friends helped me and told me about this case, they told me that you can look at this information and already then order any project from them and do business. They will do it in almost any time. That’s why I highly recommend you to get acquainted with a simply luxurious agency for writing such works. I hope that I was able to help. Good luck!
