For the past two years, Alpha Omega Publications has been active within the homeschool communities of Facebook and Twitter. Through our involvement, we have developed relationships with several inspirational moms and dads who not only provide a quality home education for their families but also are willing to share their experiences, resources, and day-to-day lives through their blog, as well as posts on Facebook and Twitter.

To honor these inspirational homeschoolers, AOP held the inaugural Homeschool Social Media Awards from August 18-31. The awards featured ten categories, each with five nominees nominated by homeschool moms and dads. Visitors were able to vote once per day for a finalist in each of the ten categories.

After over 11,000 votes and the contest being shared over 700 times on Facebook and Twitter, homeschoolers like you chose Jamerrill Stewart as the overall winner. As the top vote getter, Jamerrill won a full set of AOP curriculum in any grade level, as well as the privilege of giving away three subjects of curriculum to individuals of her choice.

To learn more about the winners, finalists, and nominees who can help you in your homeschool journey, be sure to visit the contest website for AOP's Homeschool Social Media Awards. Congratulations to all the inspiring homeschoolers who received the most votes in each category:
