  • Teens & Children
A number of workshops will be of interest to children and teenagers. Each child age 2 and older who will be attending one or more workshops or general sessions must be a paid registrant as per the price lists above (extra family member price). In any given year, an additional fee may be charged for special programs (teen track programs, etc.). Please consult the PRINTABLE, mail-in registration form for more information on any additional fees for special programs, and use this form to register. Online registration is not available for teen track programs. 

You may bring a babysitter to care for your children if you desire. If your babysitter will be attending any part of the Convention, he/she will need to be a paid registrant also (extra family member price.) If your child(ren) will not be attending any part of the Convention or Vendor Hall, they do not need to be paid registrants.

  • Scholarships            
The Board of HOME endeavors to keep convention costs to a minimum, yet if you or someone you know needs help with the registration fees, we are able to offer a limited number of  scholarships. Enclose a letter explaining your situation. Please do not call. You will be notified regarding your eligibility. Scholarships are limited to adults (2) per family. Send your letter along with a completed registration form to the address on the form by March 7, 2014. 

  • Scholarship Donations
You can be the key to blessing another homeschooler this year. Each year we have people who desire to attend the Convention. They greatly need encouragement from the speakers, workshops, and the other homeschoolers, but they are not able to afford the registration fees. We are asking for your help in providing scholarships for this year's convention. Any amount you could give to bless others would be welcomed. Please write your donation amount on the line provided on the registration form. Thank you and God bless you for your generosity.
