A Word from the Editor...


Welcome to the Internet's most comprehensive database of educational contests and scholarships for homeschooled kids! Here you will find links to over 170,000 educational contests and scholarships worth over $650 million! Is your child a history buff? Budding photographer? Engineer, artist, athlete, or scientist? You can quickly and easily search our database by category, geographic region, grade level, or keyword. You are sure to find one that is rewarding to pursue and win! Best of all, this database and Co-op membership are FREE and you won't get spammed!!!

My name is Ellen Benson. I'm a homeschooling mom in upstate New York. I have two wonderful kids - one in college now and the other, age 16, is homeschooling high school. I am delighted to introduce you to the Co-op's free and fully searchable database of contests and scholarships. You will find contests for every age and every interest. There are scholarships, too, of all types and sizes.

We at the Co-op are pleased to make this database available to all homeschoolers. However, I certainly hope you will decide to join and help us achieve our mission of making homeschooling more affordable. Our strength is in our numbers - the more members we have, the better the discounts we can negotiate from suppliers.

Whether or not you choose to join us, I hope you and your children find something of value here! And please feel free to tell a friend!

If you have comments, find errors, or know of another contest, please contact me.

Thank you!
