Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

July 1 Deadline, The Electra Awards for Art, Poetry & Prose

The Electra Awards, a new national literary and art competition, offers cash prizes for outstanding original work in the fields of art, poetry and prose. “The Electra Awards celebrate the power of art to delight, to ignite, to unite,” according to Birmingham Arts Journal editors Jim Reed, Irene Latham and Liz Reed. The competition is sponsored by the Journal in conjunction with Alabama Power Company.

Entries may be submitted from May 1 through July 1 at www.birminghamartsjournal.com

The winners will be selected by a panel of jurors in each field. A total of $2,700 will be awarded on Oct. 30 at the Alabama Power Company Archives Museum in Birmingham.

“We are honored to lend the iconic name and image of Electra to this competition,” said Alabama Power Corporate Archivist Bill Tharpe. “We share a great pride in Alabama and that drives us to support projects like this that make our state even better.”

The Birmingham Arts Journal is a quarterly literary and arts magazine that began publication in 2003 and is sustained by gifts and subscriptions. Artists and writers from throughout the world have appeared in the Journal, which is managed by volunteers.

Winners and entrants will be published in future pages of the Journal as further recognition of their artistic merit.
