Congressional Award

The Congressional Award is the U.S. Congress' award for young Americans. It is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive. The program is open to all 14- to 23-year-olds. Participants earn Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Certificates and Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Volunteer Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration. Earning the award is a fun and interesting way to get more involved in something you already enjoy or something you'd like to try for the first time. See their website at congressionalaward.org Last year, the Burlington County Times reported "Medal winner Home-schooled student, 17, earns Congressional Award." Read more about it. I always thought the congressional award looked like fun, and I had friends that did it. We never seemed to have time, but maybe it's the perfect fit for YOUR teenager. Anyone out there working on this already? Let us know your experience so far!



We've had a record response to my latest article in The HomeScholar Record. "What if?" discusses the fear that parents who are homeschooling older students feel in the face of a family crisis, and also offers strategies that will enable them to continue homeschooling.

About The HomeScholar

Lee has three core beliefs about homeschooling: homeschooling provides the best possible learning environment; every child deserves a college-prep education whether or not they choose to go to college, and parents are capable of providing a superior education to their children. Lee does not judge your homeschool or evaluate your children. Instead, she comes alongside to help and encourage parents homeschooling high school.
