Homeschool Writing Contest! (2013)

Dear Fellow Homeschooler,

I’m thrilled to announce that for the second year in a row I will be hosting a homeschool writing contest on my blog, “Philadelphia Homeschool”.  The contest is for any child currently being homeschooled (either traditional or virtual charter school) in the U.S. in grades 3 through 8.

Students will use this story starter to create a story of their own:

“Help!  Help!” my sister screamed frantically.

 I groaned.  What a drama queen!  What could it be this time?  Reluctantly, I followed the sounds of her cries …
 
God has graciously given us sponsors who are donating some fantastic prizes.  These include gift certificates to the Institute for Excellence in Writing, Subscriptions to SchoolhouseTeachers.com, writing curriculum (courtesy of Peace Hill Press) and gift cards to Amazon.com, Toys R Us, & Barnes & Noble.

More details about the contest can be found by clicking on this link to my blog: http://phillyhomeschool.wordpress.com/2013/10/17/homeschool-writing-contest-2013/.
 .
Please feel free to let your friends and homeschool network(s) know about the contest.  Last year’s contest was a great success, and I look forward to an even greater response this year.
  .
May God continue to bless your homeschool adventure!
  .
Sincerely,
