From now until November 30, beginning on the first day of each month, you can enter your story into one of Proctor and Gamble’s monthly “Thank You Mom” contests. Whether she lives near or far, share how much you appreciate your mom or the woman who has been like a mom to you, and you could win a new video camera and $1000 for a fantastic trip to visit her.
Proctor & Gamble continues to celebrate moms everywhere with “Thank You Mom Reunions”, a nationwide contest to reunite Moms and their children for milestone family moments like graduations and birthdays they otherwise might have missed. “Thank You Mom Reunions” will bring together 105 moms with their children, who are unable to do so on their own. (15 per month for a 10 month campaign.)
Judges will choose 30 finalists based on the following criteria:
- Originality & Creativity of Essay — 40%
- Overall Inspiration of Quality of Essay — 25%
- Appropriateness of Essay to Contest Theme — 25%
- Appropriateness of Title to Essay — 10%
In the event of a tie during judging, the tie will be broken based on the highest score for Originality & Creativity.
Those thirty finalists will have their stories posted in the Finalist’s Gallery and we all can go and vote for our favorites, once per day. The 15 highest-ranked stories each win $1,000 and a handheld video camera to record their reunion and post it online!
There is still time to vote on the June entries! Click over and cast a vote for your favorite.
Then start composing your own story. 15 winners will be selected every month from now until Thanksgiving! That’s July, August, September, October, and November. You can’t be one of them if you don’t enter! Hurry! Get signed up, today!
