The Contest For The Sylvan Books Has Started
This is a quick reminder that the contest for the 4th Grade Sylvan educational workbooks has begun. The reminder at the top of this blog, will stay there until the contest ends. I will be adding the reminder to my other blogs as well. To enter you need to either contact me here on this blog, or at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me who the books will be for. You must have, or know a child, that can use the books. You must be either a homeschooler, or have a child, grandchild, niece, or nephew that needs extra help with the subjects listed. At the end of the contest date, anyone who contacted me will have their names put in a hat, and one winner drawn. Please ask if you have any questions. My main goal is to be sure these go to a child that needs them.
