CONTEST: Is Your Mom the Best in Carroll County?

For a chance to win a $50 gift certificate, upload a photo of your mom and a note about why she rocks.

Poets write about them. Strong men cry in their presence. We honor them each year with a special day punctuated by hearts and flowers, and perhaps even breakfast in bed.

Don't just settle for all the customary ways to celebrate how awesome your mom is. Instead, upload a photograph of her to this article and write a caption telling us what's so great about the moms of Carroll County.  

Next Friday, May 11, at noon, we'll randomly pick a winner and call her the "Best Mom of Carroll County." 

Now that's a gift. But if that's not enough, we'll also award you a $50 gift certificate to spend any way you want on mom. 

Contest rules are attached.

Patch will also compile photos of moms from across the state for a "Moms of Maryland" photo gallery. We hope your Mom will be included.

(To submit your photo, click the Upload Photos and Video button above.)

Come on people, this is easy! All you have to do is upload a photo of your mom and tell us why she's special. What a great way to show her off for Mom's Day. If I didn't work for Patch (can't participate in my own contest) and my mom was alive, I'd be posting her picture everywhere telling everyone how amazing she is. Take a minute and do it, she deserves it.

Please dear god let my Mom win, she deserves this so much!! She is the most amazing woman i've ever met and I pray to god that she gets this award. Even if she doesn't, in my mind she's the best Mom in the universe. Always strong, always happy, always beautiful. She's my idol, my bestfriend; my guardian angel. Team Kim Cook :)
