I often report on contests
that our children can enter that will contribute to their education by writing a paper or doing research or a project of some sort. Not this time. I'm sorry to say that Subway has chosen to exclude homeschooled children from their creative writing contest
"NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Contest is open only to legal residents of the Untied States who are currently over the age of 18 and have children who attend elementary, private or parochial schools that serve grades PreK-6. No home schools will be accepted."
Why did Subway choose to discriminate against homeschoolers in this manner? I think it was an error in judgement on their part. The errors in the contest material itself indicate a lack of forethought and planning and makes me wonder who will be judging this contest. Many homeschoolers are boycotting both Subway and Scholastic Books.
