Year in Review: Phoenix homeschooling heroes

Sharing good news is a great way to end the year.  Four Phoenix area homeschoolers have been nominated to the America Inspired contest that is sponsored by Examiner.com.  The goal of the contest is to find people who have done amazing things in these five categories:

  • Leadership
  • Sacrifice
  • Passion
  • Overcoming Adversity
  • Outstanding Youth

Nominations were collected through stories written by Examiners up through December 23.  A committee is reviewing all the submissions and will post the top five candidates in each section on January 9, 2012 for public vote.  Readers will give assent to their favorites until January 27.  Winners will be announced on February 1.  The subject of the top vote-getter nomination will receive a cash prize of $50,000.  The top stories in the other four categories will garner $10,000 each for the inspirational person described therein.
