We won FIRST place in SIX categories!

Practical Homeschool Awards - 1st place winner

– We want to THANK YOU!!!!!!
It is with a great sense of gratitude and deep honor that GuestHollow.com announces that we have been selected for not one, not three, not five, but SIX awards by the readers of Practical Homeschooling Magazine!
A few weeks ago we received a surprise call from Mary Pride over at Practical Homeschooling Magazine. She was requesting an interview with us and some photos… She shared the AMAZING news, (news that we have had had to keep under wraps for weeks), – that GuestHollow’s WONDERFUL CUSTOMERS voted SIX of our curricula into FIRST PLACE in SIX categories for Practical Homeschooling Magazines Homeschooling Reader Awards!
Receiving any ONE of these awards would be no small thing for ANY homeschool material producing company, but for a little literal mom and pop company like GuestHollow to earn SIX?!?! Well, this is just way beyond what we would ever have expected, and we truly have YOU to thank for this!

As I have sometimes shared, GuestHollow is such a tiny company that we do not even have an advertising budget. We rely completely on YOU, our customers, to let other people know that GuestHollow.com even exists! So imagine the utter jaw-dropping and giddy celebrations that happened here at the GuestHollow home-office when we got Mary’s call!


We just cannot thank ALL OF YOU enough for believing in us enough to nominate GuestHollow for these awards and for voting a multiplicity of GuestHollow curricula into the FIRST PLACE slot of six awards!
Grab a copy of Practical Homeschooling Magazine’s Summer 2020 edition and open it up! I would like to direct your attention to page 12 where there is an article titled “Be Their Guest”. The article starts out with the sentences:
“Guest Hollow came out of nowhere to be one of 2020’s biggest Reader Award Winners. “Why had we not heard about this company before, we wondered. So our publisher Mary Pride, tracked down Jennifer and Charles Guest to hear their story.”

The article/interview then devotes 3 / 4 of a page to detailing who we are, where we came from, what we do, and what some of our future plans are. Practical Homeschooling also posted a photograph of Jenn holding up some of the GuestHollow curricula in our home/office library.


Again, we have all of YOU, our truly loyal customers, to thank for this. It is only because of YOU that Mary Pride at practical Homeschooling – https://www.practicalhomeschooling.com/ learned about us. Indeed, almost all of our NEW customers have learned about us from YOU generously taking some time to share about GuestHollow.com with others online and elsewhere.
So, would you like to know what it was that YOU voted GuestHollow into winning?
Well, we would humbly like to share with you that we swept some very important categories. And so without any more ado here is a list of the Practical Homeschooling Awards that we were selected to receive:
Somehow we tied for PRACTICAL HOMESCHOOLING’S ***FIRST PLACE*** AWARDS for ALL of the following GuestHollow Materials:
-> GUEST HOLLOW HIGH SCHOOL AMERICAN HISTORY in the History Category of the Practical Homeschooling 2020 Reader Awards
-> BEOWULF’S GRAMMAR in the Grammar Category of the Practical Homeschooling 2020 Reader Awards
-> GUESTHOLLOW HIGH SCHOOL BIOLOGY in the High School Biology Category of the Practical Homeschooling 2020 Reader Awards
-> GUESTHOLLOW HIGH SCHOOL CONCEPTUAL PHYSICS in the High School Physics Category of the Practical Homeschooling 2020 Reader Awards
-> GUESTHOLLOW GEOGRAPHY COURSES in the Geography Category of the Practical Homeschooling 2020 Reader Awards
-> GUESTHOLLOW HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY IN THE KITCHEN – in the High School Chemistry Category of the Practical Homeschooling 2020 Reader Awards
Again, we want to thank all of you for your support and we are totally humbled (and of course excited beyond belief) to have won so many first-place awards in the Practical Homeschooling 2020 Reader Awards. Thank you for being part of the GuestHollow family.
Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. 🙂
