Homeschoolers, It’s Your Turn! is hosting a contest for homeschool graduates and for the parents of homeschoolers, in which participants have the opportunity to win tickets to the premiere of The Chronicles of Narnia:  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  Entrants need to write a 200 word essay explaining who their favourite Narnian character is (as well as why).  The essay must also include the reason why you think you should win the grand prize.  Full rules and deadlines can be found by clicking here.

Thanks to Narnianerd for the head’s up!

    Aw man! I'm a homeschooler, but I haven't graduated from it! 🙁

    Oh well! I still love that homeschooler graduates and homeschooling parents can win tickets to the premiere! 😀

  2. Starlily says:

    Wow, I'm homeschool graduate! For once this applies to me! But…I just don't have the guts to write an essay explaining my favorite character and why I should win a grand prize. I just don't. And I dislike writing essays. Sooo…good luck to anyone who enters!

  4. EnnaGirl says:

    I'm a homeschool graduate, and I'd enter but I don't think my dad would be too pleased if I went over to London! I just barely turned 18!

    Congrats homeschoolers! To bad I went to a public school 😛

  8. Aslan's Meadow says:

    ditto! homeschool is awsome! But the link to the contest only puts you to an article which directs you to the already going focus on the family contest….that's a little weird.

  9. Narniadreamer says:

    Too bad I am not a graduate. I would LOVE to have been able to enter. Good luck of of ya'll who participate. 🙂

  10. NewMillenium says:

    Aaaw! I'm a homeschool graduate, but I'm not 18 yet, so I can't enter :*(

  11. You know what's odd about this? The writer says the contest is FocusonChristmas from Focus on the Family! I didn't know that contest was open to homeschoolers but I guess it is. So this isn't really news…

  12. RumbbleBuffinTheStrong says:

    I just started in a public High School for grade 10….
    I was homeschooled before.

  13. Pepper Darcy says:

    Rats. IT's the Focus on the Family contest. I already entered it! 🙂

  14. WarriorOfNarnia says:

    I'M HOMESCHOOLED!!!!!!!!!!! but i'm a freshman in high school……………………………. I CAN ASK MY MOM!!!

  15. Eric Novak says:

    Actually the examiner got it wrong- this is the Focus on the Family contest and it's open to anyone, not just homeschoolers or homeschool graduates. As long as you're over 18 you can enter. Plus it isn't a 200 word essay (as for a homeschooler that would be awfully short) it's UP TO 200 words. Like 220 and Lily said, there really isn't any news.


  16. Twinimage says:

    I'm a homeschool graduate and was almost tempted to consider doing this. lol

  17. NarnianPrincess says:

    My nine year old brother came to me and said "Their having a contest for homeschoolers to go to London!" and I got all excited and everything. But…then I read it for myself and found out you have to be a graduate. BUMMER!

  18. checkers says:

  21. Aravis and Hwin says:
