CONTEST: Is Your Mom the Best in Arlington 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 Arlington County.
At noon next Friday, May 11, we'll randomly pick a winner and call her the "Best Mom of Arlington 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. (C'mon, dads, if your kids can't upload a photo of your wife, do it with them!)
The contest rules are attached.
Patch will also compile photos of moms from across the state for a "Moms of Virginia" photo gallery. We hope your Mom will be included.
(To submit your photo, click the Upload Photos and Video button above.)
