WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — After months of anticipation, people who reserved one of the 13,000 tickets for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway this year, found out Wednesday evening who got the keys to the Dream Home.
- Jana Widener of Liberal won the 2021 St. Jude Dream Home constructed by Nies Homes. This beautiful house is located in the Talia community, located at 151st and Maple Street in Wichita. The names of all the people who reserved a ticket were in the hopper for the drawing.

Mitch Caddel with BKD was on hand to confirm that all tickets were counted and verified for the giveaway. Caddel placed tickets into the hopper based on the date of purchase and eligibility for each prize. The winner of each early-bird prize was added back to the hopper for the subsequent drawings.
Severe weather prevented KSN from showing the drawings live on KSN News at 5 and 6. Instead, the drawings were livestreamed on KSN.com.
