Show How Nature Grows Contest

Thanks to all who entered our Spring 2021 art contest! During the month of April, many homeschoolers (children and parents) sent in creative works of art in the form of photography, drawing, painting and creative writing. The submissions were a wonderful display of the different ways families were experiencing God’s amazing creation in the great outdoors. See the contest winners and their entries below.
