September HLN: Youth Academic Competitions

Due to the Labor Day holiday, September’s Home Learning Network meeting will be held on Wed., Sept. 8 at 7pm . We’ll be talking about Youth Academic Competitions, like the Scripps Spelling Bee, the National Geographic Bee, FIRST robotics and others, and you’ll have a chance to talk to some event organizers, parents and students who’ve participated in events -– including Tommy Foster who recently competed at the National Spelling Bee in Washington DC.

The Home Learning Network typically meets the first Monday of (most) months at the Jimmy Keel Public Library in Tampa. We have a different topic each month, or no topic at all, and conversation ranges across all homeschool and educational topics.

So join us for a fun, free evening of camaraderie, discussion and great educational ideas, at Jimmy Keel Public Library at 2902 West Bearss Avenue , Wednesday, September 8, at 7pm.
