Here's some giveaway love you are going to want to pay attention to. I'm participating in the Back 2 School Bloggie Boogie Giveaway. Stay tuned to a few seconds from now where I'll show you how you can win $87.85 worth of awesomeness. But I'm not the only one giving stuff away. There are a bunch of other blogs participating – you can win some awesome stuff from them as well. But even better than that – you can win the grand prize drawing of $500 from the sponsor of this whole shebang: Save & Make Moola! Stay tuned for details on how to enter those!

First off, though, is the giveaway I'm hosting right here at the Half-Pint House. I'm giving away THREE subscriptions to God's World News for kids. One winner will win the new high school edition, Trak, plus their choice of any two other levels. I'm really excited to tell you about the changes in store for this coming school year. Instead of four levels, they revamped the age ranges and added two new levels. These will be even BETTER suited for your children's reading abilities than ever before.

Trak ($29.95 value) is the high school level of the monthly magazines, designed to sharpen students' biblical worldview in preparation for college and career. Consistent with all of our publications, Trak emphasizes News, Knowledge, and Wisdom, but with a distinctive style and voice that appeals to young adults who are transitioning to a new life stage.

  • In-depth feature stories convey high-visibility developments in a teen-friendly style.
  • Editorials stimulate critical thinking skills.
  • Economics, technology, and other must-know subjects are translated through relevant, interesting stories.
  • Info Graphics illustrate and convey important news concepts.
  • Safe coverage of cultural events and personalities exposes students to appropriate, yet timely trends and events.
  • Online content expands the GWNews experience.

In addition to a subscription to Trak, you can choose two of the following levels of magazines:

If you click through to see these mags you can download sample issues of each from the God's World News website.

I, personally, LOVE these mags. Think of them as the Weekly Reader you might remember from your youth. The difference however is that this is news with a biblical worldview. My kids love them too. I can't tell you how many times they have shared a news story with me and after hearing about it I ask them how they found out – they grin and say, "God's World News!" I love that.

If you picked all of the top three levels of subscriptions, this giveaway has the potential of being worth $87.85! That's awesome!

Here's how you can enter my giveaway for Trak plus any two other subscriptions to God's World News plus get your name in the big drawing for $500!

Important to note: Every thing you do to enter my giveaway will ALSO enter you to win the $500! If you only take advantage of one of ways below, I'll send your name over once. If you do all 7 things below, I will send your name over 7 times! Time to get entering!

OH, being that I teach preschoolers at our school (and I have one in my home!), I would chose to win GOD’S BIG WORLD. I got a taste of a sample online a few months back and was tempted to purchase a sub. but needed to wait on approval from the board. I would love this!

Oh, I would love to win this! But it would be easier to tell you which I *wouldn’t* choose. I wouldn’t choose News Flash, as I don’t have a 3rd or 4th grader. I probably would not choose God’s Big World, and instead have my kindergartner share Early Edition with her big brother. And I’d probably have the 5th and 7th graders share News Current.
The only one I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that I would choose no matter what is Trak… that is the one I am seriously trying to figure out a way to get this year. I would love all but News Flash, but realistically…
