Our Create for Cause contest has ended! Thank you for all your wonderful submissions! We will announce the winners very soon.


We at 42 North realize that we are in the midst of trying times but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun and get a little creative! Create for Cause’s helps support small, local Michigan businesses and allowing kids to have fun making art and expressing their creativity.

Model Contest Prizes:

Dinner with 42 North and a weekend trip for 4 up north.

We’ll be sending the lucky winners of the model building contest up north for 2 days and 2 nights. We’ll also join you for dinner! Check out the model building contest rules to enter.

Model Contest Guidelines:

We also have an original art piece contest. Build an art piece inspired by any of our homes. You can use clay, wood, sticks, or any other medium, as long as you find it at home. No 3D printing, please! The winner of the model contest will win a weekend getaway up north for 4 people, as well as dinner with the 42 North team.
