As part of our 35th Anniversary â€“ and commitment to wealth-building, BLACK ENTERPRISE launched the Own Your First Home Contest in our August 2005 issue. Through our BlackEnterprise.com website, we provided applicants with the opportunity to win $10,000 toward a down payment on their property. The contest was limited to first-time home buyers who met credit requirements to qualify for a mortgage. So far, we have selected four winners. Although cover subjects Maria and Cameron Saulsby did not participate, the first-time home buyers offered a strong example of how homeownership enables individuals to achieve long-term wealth-building goals.
