TOS Homeschool Crew: Blue Ribbon Awards

As the 2011-2012 Crew year comes to a close, the Crew once again voted, and we are proud to present awards to our vendors - the TOS Homeschool Crew Blue Ribbon Awards.

I did not review all of these products this year, but I did review a lot of them.  Since this is my blog, I'll link up my review where appropriate, and the text will be in blue.  If I didn't review the product, the link will take you to the TOS Homeschool Crew Blog page for that review.  All my reviews link back to the TOS Homeschool Crew Blog page, if you want to see other people's opinions too.

Obviously, everyone I voted for didn't win, but there certainly are some amazing companies and products on this list.

The following vendors are the recipients of the award (pictured at the left) this year:
