Be sure to include:

• Your name and contact information;

• Mother’s name, age, address and contact information (winning moms must be residents of Fayette County);

• A photo of the mother nominated; and

• Why this person should be recognized as a “Mother of the Year.”

The most important thing to know about this contest is that if you don’t enter, you can’t win. Three moms are going to have a very nice Mothers’ Day. Why not yours?

Nominations for younger moms are sometimes lacking. There aren’t a lot of young children who write to us, but there are lot of under 40 moms who deserve to have their stories told. Please think of your friends, wives and daughters in this age category and let us know about them too. Don’t forget the under-40 moms who deserve to have their stories told.
