Building Pure Michigan places begins with celebrating great places

Now through Labor Day, residents across our state have the chance to win fantastic prizes by answering one simple question: Why do you choose to call Michigan home?

To learn more about Michigan placemaking, go to MIplace2012.

At the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA), the Michigan Association of REALTORS® (MAR) and Art Van Furniture, we are committed to placemaking – the idea that people are attracted to great places and vibrant communities. We’re uniting to help reimagine Michigan through the lens of placemaking. But we need your help! Enter the MIplace™ Sweepstakes. Tell the world at MIplace2012 why you choose Michigan as your place to live, work, play and share the dream of homeownership. 

Celebrating great places.

Michigan is blessed with great places. Thriving neighborhoods from Hamtramck to Lansing. Dynamic downtowns, from Ann Arbor to Traverse City. Small-town gems, from Alpena to Mackinac City. The goal of the MIplace™ Sweepstakes is to inspire individuals, communities and organizations to develop even more Michigan great places. Our mission begins with one easy step: Celebrating the great places that are uniquely Michigan.

Share why you choose Michigan at MIplace2012.

Tell us what makes your Michigan place great – from new homes and condos to renovated houses and repurposed lofts, family-friendly neighborhoods with parks and gathering places, or walkable downtowns with a variety of restaurant, shopping and transportation options. Everyone has a story – we want to hear yours. It’s fast, fun and rewarding.

To enter the MIplace™ Sweepstakes, submit a video or written testimonial at MIplace2012. Art Van Furniture -- which celebrates 53 years of doing business in Michigan – is providing prizes, including a Free Shopping Spree Extravaganza. The bonus reward? Enjoying more pride in your Michigan home.
