2014 Bloggy Convention! (and Kindle Fire HD giveaway)

It’s one of my favorite times of the year — homeschool convention season. For the 3rd year in a row, I’ll be highlighting some of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine’s favorite homeschool conventions — in fact, TOS will be attending 9 conventions this year.

So, beginning tomorrow, I’ll be sharing a bit about each of these conventions:

GHC – March 20-22 – Greenville, SC

GHC – April 24-26 – Cincinnati, OH

FPEA – May 22-25 – Kissimmee, FL

TPA – May 30-31 – Wichita, KS

HEAV – June 5-7 – Richmond, VA

GHC – June 12-14 – Ontario, CA

AHEC – June 26-28 – Pigeon Forge, TN

AFHE – July 11-12 – Phoenix, AZ

VHE – July 25-26 – Modesto, CA

But that’s not all! I’ll also be featuring one speaker from each convention with a giveaway of their wonderful products. Fun, huh?

And what convention would be complete without a  Vendor Hall? So each post will contain a list of homeschool companies that will be at the featured convention each day, with links to our Crew Reviews of their products.

I’m excited to get started, aren’t you?

Oh wait . . . did I mention we’re going to kick things off today with a giveaway? Two winners will each receive a Kindle Fire HD!

  1. My kids gave me a Kindle for Mother’s Day two years ago and we put so many apps on it for our 9 year old, that I have kind of lost “custody” of my device and would love to have one to call my own again. 🙂

  2. I would use the Kindle Fire for my girls – I would get books for my oldest to read, and learning apps for my youngest. It would be nice for them to have this so I can keep use of my own tablet 🙂

  3. I would probably move all my books to the Kindle Fire and let the children keep our current kindle specifically for school. It’s hard sharing it with them!

  4. I’m not sure – we use e-readers a lot (though our original Nook Color and a Kindle paperwhite are both dead), but there are also apps I’ve been waiting to have a tablet to use them on – it’s not the same on a phone screen. 🙂

  5. Would totally use a kindle for books. We have been waiting to get one, my son is home schooled and I think he would enjoy reading on this more than conventional books..and this would be a great prize to win.

  6. Books….and lots of them. I finally had to leave my ‘library” behind when a move a few years ago included 190 boxes of books—not counting books that ended up in other boxes. Now that Kindles exist, I could re-collect books and move them…in a tote bag!

  7. Books first, always! But I’d love to be able to use it as a tablet with apps, as well. I’d love to read TOS magazine on the Kindle. I can’t do that with my simple Kindle.

  8. I would like to use it for kindle books. I have quite the collection I’ve accumulated over the past couple years, mostly free and it would be nice to have a Kindle to read them on.

  9. I would use the Kindle Fire HD mainly for books. My kids also like to play games, so I would probably get some apps also. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this contest.

  10. Books! Apps! More books! I love how it is a tablet and reader in one. And I love the Kindle Free Time feature to help manage what the kids can and cannot access or even see, and then it sets time limits on the things they can access. What a great idea! I love it.

  11. I would love to win a Kindle Fire. I homeschool two special needs children and this would be a wonderful tool to add to our resources. Thank you so much for the opportunity to enter the contest.

  12. We would definitely use this for books at first, then maybe venture into some apps. 🙂 What a great give-away for homeschoolers!

  13. I owned books! I was totally against kindles and tablets to begin with but I played with a friends kindle last year and I loved it!
