No more Subway for us! Tuesday, May 27 2008 

Subway excludes homeschoolers from their latest contest.

HT- Elizabeth and Jennifer

ETA- I just received this e-mail from Lorri:

Subway has issued an apology and an explanation:
"Regarding your concerns about the Subway contest that excludes home
schools from contest eligibility, Scholastic and Subway apologize to
all individuals who have taken offense at this. Our intention was
never to make independent schooled children feel discriminated
against or excluded from this specific promotion.

Throughout the course of the year Scholastic runs a number of
contests and sweepstakes that are open to all teachers and students.
The eligibility of this contest in particular was solely put in place
to award a large group of children with the grand prize of $5,000
worth of athletic equipment. We do however understand how home-
schooled children could benefit from this type of prizing and will
make sure eligibility is open to everyone in future promotions.

We appreciate your feedback and will make sure a similar situation
does not happen in the future.

If anyone has any additional comments to make regarding this contest,
please email Scholastic directly at P&Cconnects@scholastic.com and we
will respond promptly to your concerns. Other email addresses or
phone numbers shown in this blog will not reach individuals who are
equipped to help you. Again, please direct all comments/inquiries to
P&Cconnects@scholastic.com and we would be more than happy to speak
with you regarding this.

Thank you!"

Jennifer at S/V Mari Hal-O-Jen is inviting people to post a photo a day for the month of April, sort of like a carnival. Here is mine for today. I’m late as usual ; )

This is Joseph, reading Woodrow, the White House Mouse to the baby. She looks like she’s about to chomp down on that book.
