Convention Program Cover Contest

Open to California students of compulsory school attendance age (6-18 years old) who are currently being privately home educated in accordance with CHEA’s mission, we invite entries based on our convention theme “Steadfast.”

In times that are filled with much uncertainty, we know there is One who always remains constant…sure…unchanging…STEADFAST. No matter what is going on in the world around us, we can be assured that God is in control. 1 Corinthians 15:58 says, “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

The deadline to submit entries is November 30, 2020.

A winner will be selected and announced on December 7, 2020. The winner will receive a $100 cash prize and a Family Registration to the 2021 CHEA Convention in Anaheim.
