Homeschool Programming, Curriculum, and Good Citizenship

Nominations closed last week and we will begin letting everyone vote this Friday morning, pending there are no unsuspected surprises that pop up and prevent us from getting the polls ready. We were thankful that the lady we are hiring to help us run the polls was OK and has power – she was in Sandy’s path!

Please spread the word about the awards and link back to our main page for the awards – and you can show your support by snagging a button from our button page (they will update automagically when voting starts and ends).

Be sure to browse our prize pages and get to know our amazing vendors who partnered with us to make the awards more fun for the winners. We highlight three of our vendors each Wednesday through the awards season, so here’s this week’s spotlighted sponsors:

Homeschool Programming, Inc.


They have graciously donated 2 – KidCoder: Windows Programming or TeenCoder: Windows Programming courses with instructional videos.

Our self-study computer science curriculum teaches your students how to write their very own computer programs, games, and Android apps!

The KidCoder Series of Visual Basic courses for 4th-8th grade is light hearted and easy to learn, with plenty of detailed examples and guidance to keep your student on the right track. This series is geared for younger students or those just trying out the field of computer programming to see if they like it.

The TeenCoder C# Series and TeenCoder Java Series for 9th-12th grade are for older students looking for a more in-depth study of computer programming. These courses can be used for high school computer elective credit, enhancing transcripts, and preparing a college-bound student for a technical degree.

Approximate value = $85-90 each





They have graciously donated 20 – 1 Your-Choice Curriculum Item

Choose from Writing, Psychology, Literature, Human Development, Drama, and more!

Approximate value = $29.99


The following sponsor has a Texas legislative watch group (and offers endorsements for homeschool and parenting-friendly candidates for the general and all Texas elections) and puts on a super Texas-sized homeschool conference with some of the most fun add-ons you can imagine: field trips and a great teen program included. My daughter is in this shot from last summer’s THSC Woodlands, TX conference:


Texas Home School Coalition


They have graciously donated… 1 – THSC Good Citizen Pack and Educational DVD of choice & 1 – Five Educational DVD’s or CD’s of winner’s choice from the THSC store

THSC Good Citizen Pack and Educational DVD of your choice produced by THSC specifically for Texas home schoolers.

Winner’s choice of 5 THSC DVDs or CDs from the THSC Store
DVD’s or CD’s that allow you to attend encouraging and educational home school workshops in the privacy of your own home.
