Homeschoolers: Are you running a successful business? AZ Republic want to honor young entrepreneurs

Homeschooling, for many, means that the parents have to wear numerous hats.  After all, they are the ones responsible for laying a foundation for their kids to thrive in all areas of life–academics, citizenship, marriage and family, and vocations.

Often, the homeschool culture includes entrepreneurial jobs started by the student or modeled by the family.  This approach works well since students are encouraged to think creatively and come up with new ways of applying their knowledge.  Also, the families may have more time to engage in business ventures since the academics don’t take up the whole day.

For the fourth year, The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com are seeking to honor young entrepreneurs who have started an Arizona business that is already showing revenue growth.  Last year, 175 applicants vied for the 35 places of honor, and their enterprises ranged from social media companies to wineries to limousine services.  For 2010, another 35 will be chosen who fit these criteria:

  • Must be 35 years old or younger
  • Must have been born after October 1, 1975
