At the beginning of every year, dozens of homeschool students across the state pull out their cameras, computers, pencils, and paintbrushes; and let their creative juices flow. And every year, at our annual statewide homeschool convention, we get to witness the terrific results of their efforts. This year was no exception, and it was a blessing to see their excellent work along with increased participation! Participants range from seven to nineteen years old and participate for a variety of reasons. Some do it as part of their homeschool curriculum, some as part of a co-op class, and some just because they love what they do!
The IAHE Expressions! contest consists of four categories: Art, Photography, Writing, and Video; and within those categories, several different mediums, styles, and topics exist from which to choose.
All Art, Photography, and Writing entries will be on display at the 2017 IAHE Home Educators’ Convention.
The Video contest winner’s entry can be viewed below.
The IAHE’s desire for this contest is to help provide an avenue in which students can better develop their knowledge, talents, and ability to communicate in order to serve God and those around them. Regardless of whether you are a creative writer, a cinematographer, or a painter, we would love to see your work next year! And just in case you were unable to attend this year’s convention, here is a list of this year’s winners!
