Contests for Homeschoolers
Every year, HSLDA offers 4 quarterly contests, open to all homeschooled students ages 7–19. The 2014–2015 academic year is upon us, and HSLDA is excited to kick off this year’s student contests with our 13th annual Essay Contest!
The power to communicate is the power to effect change. Artwork, poetry, photography, and essay writing represent powerful tools of visual and verbal communication. Through its contests, HSLDA hopes to offer homeschooled students the opportunity to hone their skills in a fun and creative setting that invites them to think outside the box and be rewarded for excellence.
