Talent Show—Friday, 7–8:30 p.m.

Our annual Friday evening talent show is the perfect opportunity for homeschoolers to shine like stars. Enjoy the talent of homeschoolers as they perform everything from music and poetry to gymnastics and comedy.

* Please note, due to popularity and time constraints, there will be a cap on the number of talent show acts and each one will be limited to three minutes. No one may participate as a lead performer in more than one performance. Acts are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Project Exhibit—Friday, 7–8:30 p.m.

Not comfortable jumping on stage to share your passion, but you still have a collection, a piece of art, or a science project you want to show? Have you been bitten by the photography bug? Do your talents lie in quilting or sewing? Is writing poetry your favorite way of expressing yourself? Is coloring a creative outlet for you? Our project exhibit is the perfect venue for you and your accomplishments. Please indicate on your registration form if you would like to display in the project exhibit. We will post all exhibits on our conference website so you can easily share your project with friends and family!

* Limit of five projects per participant.

Ice Cream Social—Friday, 8:30–9:30 p.m.
Meet up with old and new friends at the ice cream social immediately following the talent show, as we close out the first day of the conference.

Find Your Common-Unity: Teen Breakfast Jam—Saturday, 9–11 a.m.

Teens, ages 13–18, are invited to two special activities that will occur concurrently on Saturday morning.

Teens can jam on musical instruments that they bring while getting to know each other in a relaxed and fun environment. Or, they can sit back and explore some challenges teens face.

Homeschooling is diverse, but because our numbers are relatively few, it can often be a challenge to find your community when you belong to a minority. Take this opportunity to join us in finding your community and participate in an open discussion on how to find your people no matter their race, gender, sexuality, religion, illness, ability, and more. The discussion will be held in the same area as the music jam and is scheduled for 9–10 a.m., but it can also go longer. Discussion hosted by Sam Silverberg. Teens can choose to participate in one or both activities, or use this time to socialize with each other. Breakfast foods will be served.
