Where to go for a boost of homeschool inspiration

Welcome to a giveaway–sponsored by my friends at Great Homeschool Conventions:

“Great Homeschool Conventions is in full convention season! With our first two conventions under our belt, we are ready for the next two, no… THREE events! 

We recently “adopted” an established St. Louis convention, and we’re so excited to be working with the previous organizers this year and in the coming years as we expand the St. Louis Homeschool Convention. We decided to host the St. Louis event this year, July 13-15th, so the folks in that area won’t miss their annual event.

For all our homeschool events, we strive to educate by providing speakers who are professionals in their field, who can better prepare you for the journey, aspire to encourage you as you connect with like-minded, grace-filled families, and equip you with comprehensive curriculum choices in the largest homeschool curriculum halls in the country.”

The 2017 dates and locations are:

  • TEXAS Homeschool Convention, Fort Worth Convention Center, Fort Worth, TX – February 23-25, 2017 – We had a great event! Make plans to attend in 2018 – March 15 – 17th!
  • SOUTHEAST Homeschool Convention, TD Convention Center, Greenville, SC, March 16-18, 2017 – We had a great event! Make plans to attend in 2018 – March 8 – 10th.

Still to come….
