It’s that time of year! Time to put on your
most fancy most comfortable attire, and attend an award show! Just a few weeks ago while citizens of the US were casting their votes, the Homeschool Review Crew members were busy casting some votes of our own! Every year, Crew members get to vote on their favorite vendors. This year, the Homeschool Review Crew reviewed products from over 60 different companies!
Check out the winners of the 2020 Blue Ribbon Awards voted on by people just like myself, who actually used the products for several weeks, then took the time to tell us all about it!
This was a big year for homeschooling! I hope new homeschoolers have found our reviews helpful as many have switched to the greener grass. This is my second year of being on the crew, and my main reason for being on the crew remains the same:
My Top Picks!
This year, I reviewed 13 products for the Homeschool Review Crew. I was even honored to be the Reviewer of the Month for June! Most of my reviews are products for teens in high school. Check out my complete round up of reviews, and our top five favorites!
Some of my reviews contain affiliate links. It cost nothing extra for you if you decide to purchase. Thank you so much for supporting my blog.

If you love reading reviews, (like I do) and if you’re still pretending like it’s 2019, (and I don’t blame you) here are my top pics from my first year on the crew. Perhaps you are a blogger, vlogger, or social media influencer, and would like to do something like I do. Our 2021 Crew Applications are now available and are currently taking applicants. Being a Homeschool Crew Review member has been a blessing to our family!
A big thank you to the vendors and the Review Crew for allowing our family to review these wonderful products! My goal is to serve my homeschooling community, so many thanks to those that help make that happen! Check out favorites from other members of the crew below!
