2020 Sower & Harvest Short Story Prizes

The competition was open to current homeschool students. Prizes were awarded to all winners.

 

A Note From the Founder

 

Our contest themes of selfishness, integrity, and regret were intended to underscore the importance of character. Without good moral character, our society would fall into an abyss of despair. 

Thankfully, God-fearing, Bible-believing homeschooling parents continue to impart wonderful virtues in their children that in time will bring honor to God and help shape our society in the future.

Parents, we value your efforts and it is our hope that this contest served as a means to highlight the harvest you’ve reaped in your children.

To all who participated, we sincerely thank you for sharing your creative work with us. Please know that you each represent a bountiful harvest of hope and encouragement for years to come.

Our contest would not be successful without our sponsors. Their support for this contest illustrates their commitment to providing resources that enrich the homeschooling experience. We are grateful to partner with them for our third biennial Sower & Harvest Short Story Prizes.

And now, we present the winners of the 2020 Sower & Harvest Short Story Prizes!
