Here’s a bit more about Great Homeschool Conventions:

“Slated for the first half of 2012, Great Homeschool Conventions will hold regional conventions in South Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio, California and Connecticut. Each convention features a huge Homeschool Curriculum exhibit hall.

The featured speakers include Chuck Colson, Andrew Pudewa, Diana Waring, Dr. Jay Wile, Amanda Bennett, David Hazel, Dr. Carol Reynolds, Todd Wilson, Sonya Shafer, John Stonestreet,  Dr. Susan Wise Bauer, Pastor Tedd Tripp, John Rosemond, Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, Carl Kerby, Dr. Jobe Martin and dozens more!

There will be a wide variety of workshop topics covering subjects such as math, science, language arts, music and more—from elementary levels through high school. Special attention is given to learning styles, gifted children, special needs, unit studies, Classical homeschooling and Charlotte Mason methods of home education.

Additionally, there are unique, optional “workshop tracks” that cover Christian Worldview, Creation Apologetics, Parenting, as well as a special track for Teens. Check out our website to see how you can be notified about early bird registration discounts.”

Today’s winner will receive one family registration to the conference location of your choice!
