CONTEST: Is Your Mom the Best in Anne Arundel 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 Anne Arundel County.  

On May 11 at noon, we'll randomly pick a winner and call her the "Best Mom of Anne Arundel 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 Maryland" photo gallery. We hope your mom will be included.

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

Our mom is the best mom on the planet. She volunteers so much for us at our schools, sports, and more. She is the team mom for my softball team and was the costume director for Rock n' Roll Revival (my brother was in the show). She is a master gardener and teaches gardening lessons at London Town. She goes to church with us every sunday and volunteers as the director of the sunday school. You might think that she never has time for us but she can always find time for our family. Those are some reasons why my mom is the best. I don't think that anyone but my mom can do all this without hesitation. I am honestly blessed to have such a wonderful, fantastic, amazing, extrordinairy mom in the universe.
