During the first couple of years of our homeschooling, I didn’t go to any homeschooling conferences or conventions. I relied on books, the internet and our homeschooling group for more information, as well as online shopping for supplies. I definitely felt like something was missing in that experience, but I didn’t know what it was until the first time I went to a homeschooling convention.
I have been blessed to have been able to go to several conferences and conventions since that time, and I can say, without a doubt, that my favorite of those was one of the regional Great Homeschool Conventions.
If you’ve never been to one of them, I can’t recommend it enough! (And, if you haven’t been to one, you might get a chance by entering this giveaway.) When I went to one, not only did I get to be around so many wonderful homeschoolers, but I got to do one of my favorite things — shop for homeschooling supplies while being able to actually look at them in person! (Plus, I got to run into Samantha from To Be Busy at Home. Crazy, huh?)
In honor of there being five different regional Great Homeschool Conventions, we’re going to be giving away five family registrations! If you win, you’ll be able to choose which particular region you attend. The conventions are held in: Greenville (SC), Memphis (TN), Cincinnati (OH), Long Beach (CA), and Hartford (CT).
The conventions feature hundreds of information-packed workshops, as well as amazing exhibit halls (that’s my favorite part!). Some of the featured speakers include: CHUCK COLSON, Andrew Pudewa, DIANA WARING, Dr. Jay Wile, CATHY DUFFY, David Hazell, Dr. CAROL REYNOLDS, Jim Weiss and literally dozens more outstanding speakers!
Please visit www.GreatHomeschoolConventions.com for more information and to join the email newsletter list to receive Early-Bird Discount Registration information! Make sure to “like” the Great Homeschool Convention Facebook page as well.
(Even if you don’t win one of the registrations, please know that the registration fee, especially with the early-bird discount, makes this a very reasonably priced convention. As a matter-of-fact, though it has been the largest and most well-rounded convention I’ve been to, it was also the cheapest! Double bonus!)
This giveaway will run until Tuesday, October 18th at 11:59 pm EST. To enter for a chance to win a family registration, you can do any (or all) of the following: *Winners Have Been Randomly Chosen and Contacted*
