Our 2017 Blue Ribbon Award Picks

2017 has been a great year on the Homeschool Review Crew.  We have had the opportunity to work with many, many great companies and products.  Our Crew year has just finished up for 2017 and that means we had to vote for our favorite products that we reviewed this year.  The kids and I were blessed to work on over 50 reviews this year and that means we got to try out a lot of great products.  Once our year finishes up we, as reviewers, get to wrap up our year by voting for our favorite products of the year.  Then our amazing Crew leaders tally the votes and the Homeschool Review Crew gives out Blue Ribbon Awards.  I always love and dread voting for these awards.  We get the chance to work with so many great products and sometimes it is really, really, REALLY hard to pick our very favorite.  Ultimately we do have to pick and we sat down to vote.  This is how our voting turned out for our family.

That is it!  This is how we voted in the Blue Ribbon Awards this year.  There were some categories we didn't vote in because we didn't review a product in that category.  I want to thank each and every company that we got a chance to work with this year for making great homeschool products.  There are so many that we worked with that we also really enjoyed, but we couldn't vote for every single company.
