Cabarrus County and the Cities of Concord and Kannapolis have announced the winners of the Fair Housing Month TikTok Contest. Winning videos were selected based on the use of the theme “Home Sweet Home.” The videos also needed to educate people on the Fair Housing Act and how it protects people from discrimination when purchasing or renting a home, getting a mortgage, seeking housing assistance or engaging in other housing-related activities.

Taylor Maddox, a ninth grader at Carolina International School, is the first-place winner. The second-place winner is Ally Zendejas, a tenth grader at Cox Mill High School. The third-place winner is Katelyn Cisine, a ninth grader at West Cabarrus High School. Prizes were awarded in the amounts of $100, $75, and $50.

Winners were announced during the virtual Fair Housing seminar held today where Mr. James Perry, President and CEO of the Winston-Salem Urban League spoke about the N.C. Fair Housing Act and rights regarding equal housing during the event.
