We’ll also be running several contests during the convention, so check the blog throughout the convention weekend.

Here's Contest #1

To enter this contest, leave a comment here on the blog telling us why you like homeschooling in Illinois. We’ll pick a winner later today.

The winner gets a copy of Ginger Plowman’s No More Whining: Three Easy Steps to Whine-Free Living. Ginger will be one to the speakers at the convention.

Happy springtime to you and your family.

Best Homeschool Video

Larel Springs an online homeschooling website has announced the winner of the "Why homeschool is cool" contest.

Hazel drew black and white illustrations that she brought to life with full animation. The video expresses that the world is a homeschool student's classroom, not a homeroom -- showing that homeschool students can read, paint and do science experiments outside with other homeschool students. Hazel also provided the background piano music, Edvard Greig's "Watchman's Song." View Hazel's video at
