Ever wanted a “student/grad spotlight” for your homeschool child? For example, did they win a scholarship, receive a reward, start a business, or excel in a contest?

Well, here’s your chance to share!

For years we’ve featured homeschoolers and their accomplishments in our newsletter‘s student spotlight. Now we’re sharing more of these success stories online and on social media!

Here are some guidelines:

  • Write at least 1 paragraph describing your accomplishment(s)
  • Attach a high-resolution picture (ideally, at least 1 MB or more)
  • Include contact details where we can reach you for more information (email address and phone number)

Additionally, if you just want the submission to be featured in our newsletter and not online or on social media, please indicate that on the following form.

  • 2017 Spotlight: “Congratulations to Kayley Brethour and Kayla Cossins, May 2017 homeschool graduates who have received top college scholarships! Kayley, daughter of Clay and Kristin Brethour, will be attending Kansas State University. She received the Vanier Family Business Administration Best of Kansas Scholarship. It is the largest and most selective scholarship award made by Kansas State University’s College of Business. The scholarship recognizes students who have been truly outstanding, both academically and as student leaders, during their high school career. Kayla, daughter of Rob and Denise Cossins, will be attending MidAmerica Nazarene University. She was awarded a full-tuition scholarship given to high-achieving high school seniors during the Scholarship Challenge Weekend. Both scholarships were based on excellence in academics, leadership, and service; required applications, essays, and interviews; and are renewable for 4 years. Well done, Kayley and Kayla!” (See the post on our Facebook page.)
