Shine a Light on Maine Homeschoolers!

Share Your Stories and Accomplishments

Share the joys of homeschooling with Maine lawmakers, friends and family members, and others throughout our state. 


You can help HOME to create a beautiful book to show and tell the story of your homeschool journey by sending us your submissions. Submissions can include:

  • Treasured family recipes
  • Photos of homeschool projects
  • Student reports
  • Poems
  • Drawings
  • Photographs with captions
  • Testimonials 
  • Favorite homeschool facts and quotes

We will present the book as a gift to members of the 131st Maine Legislature! Now, more than ever, lawmakers need to be encouraged to protect homeschool freedoms. This keepsake gift will connect legislators with their constituents and help to shine a bright light on homeschoolers and homeschooling in Maine. 


Also, sales of the book will help fund the work of HOME projects like HOMEschool Kits for Kids and HOME Scholarships. Scholarships are available to Maine homeschool families in need throughout the year for services and resources provided by HOME.
