2006 started of on the run, with the Indiana Home Educators' Network's awarding of four Daily History Learning Calendars to two subscribers of IHEN's IndianaHomeschoolers discussion list, and two online entrants.

January's winners are: Tiffany Arnold, Delaware County; Becki Biberdorf, Johnson County; Holly Dieterlen, Clark County; Betty Malone, Madison County. Two winners were drawn at random from posts they made to the IndianaHomeschoolers list, and two were chosen at random from entries made via IHEN's web site.

"Every once in awhile, vendors and suppliers to the homeschooling community donate books, or products for us to give away," said Ben Bennett, Project Coordinator for the Indiana Home Educators' Network and co-manager of the state's largest e-mail discussion list for homeschoolers, IndianaHomeschoolers. "We have so many great subscribers that are Helping Hoosiers Homeschool every day, it's nice to reward a few when we can. It keeps things fun too!"

This month's giveaway prices were four very handsome learning calendars, which lists events in history for every day of the year. The calendars were provided by TheLearningCalendar.com. The producer of award winning educational calendars is also providing all Indiana Homeschoolers who visit the IHEN.org web site, a 10% discount on purchases. Their banner ad with discount information is in IHEN's Online Shopping Mall at http://shop.ihen.org.

The Indiana Home Educators' Network and IndianaHomeschoolers doesn't hold giveaways on a regular basis, but according to Mr. Bennett, "We're in the process of arranging for some really nice prizes to give away this year. As businesses and vendors begin to realize that IHEN and our statewide discussion list are reaching homeschoolers throughout the entire state, they'll want us to help them reach those parents with their message."

The Indiana Home Educators' Network
(www.IHEN.org) is a non-membership networking organization of parent volunteers who home educate their children in Indiana.

In 1998, homeschooler, Jane Casey established the networking and discussion e-mail list called IndianaHomeschoolers [more info] that now supports the largest subscriber base of homeschoolers in Indiana. [As of 1/2006, IndianaHomeschoolers had over 1,035 subscribers.] Ben Bennett began work in 2001 on the IHEN.org web site to archive and support the growing public e-list. IHEN's mission statement can be found here: http://www.ihen.org/content/missionstatement.htm

In addition to the support provided by their discussion lists, IHEN has also published an helpful online brochure called "Get Started! You can educate your child at home in Indiana"

Helping Hoosiers Homeschool is the motto of the Indiana Home Educators' Network.
