Art, Photography & Writing Contests for Homeschooling Students

Many thanks to Terry Cain for letting us know about this great new endeavor by Elizabeth Cain!

As a homeschool mom of four very artistically gifted kids Terry mentions:

“I have struggled over the years to find ways for them to really strive to sharpen their artistic talents. Because of the struggle we have had in finding contests and such for them, one of my graduated homeschool daughters has created contests in art, writing and photography. Her desire is to encourage kids to develop these skills and ultimately use them for the Lord.”

 

NC Homeschool-ology is excited to help spread the word about these contests to other homeschooling families.
