2014 Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards

Practical Homeschooling Reader Award

Since 1994 Practical Homeschooling magazine has hosted annual Reader Awards for homeschool curriculum. This event is a little different in that the Reader Awards are not a “popularity” prize, but a “satisfaction” prize.

First, homeschoolers nominate their favorite products in a wide number of categories. PHS tabulates the results and creates a ballot. Then homeschoolers vote, ranking on a scale of 1 to 10 only the products they have used. The product with the highest customer satisfaction in a category wins.

We are thrilled to announce that SCM has won eight Reader Awards in 2014! The winners are

  • Picture Study Portfolios—Everything you need to do art appreciation, all gathered into one beautiful package: gorgeous art prints, an artist biography, information on the pictures, and more!
