Tomorrow is the last day to enter The Royal Gazette’s competition to help us find the Island’s ‘Mom in a Million’.

We want to hear from you no matter how old or young you are.

Write and tell us why your mom deserves to win our top prize of flowers for a year, sponsored by DEMCO Floral Services.

Just submit 200 words on how the special lady in your life has offered encouragement or support, and shaped you into the person you are today.

This could be a mom, stepmom, mother-in-law, grandmother or foster parent anyone who taught you important life lessons, helped pay your way through college, or supported you through a rough time or illness. Whatever it is that sets your mom apart, we want to hear about it.

Acting Editor Jeremy Deacon said he was delighted to be able to offer this competition to readers. “There are so many awesome mothers out there who go beyond the call of duty to make sure their children are happy and healthy,” he said.

“We want to honour some of these special moms for all the hard work they do behind the scenes for their families and let them know they are valued and appreciated.”

A host of wonderful prizes will be on offer. DEMCO will deliver a monthly floral creation to the winning Mom in a Million starting next month and running through April 2014.

The displays will vary, with special occasion arrangements created for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and of course Mother’s Day.

The second prize winner will take home a $100 DEMCO gift certificate; with third place getting a $50 gift certificate. The competition is open to people of all ages.

DEMCO owner Carmen Phillips said motherhood was extremely important to all her staff, which is why they jumped at the chance to pay tribute to some of those great moms on the Island.

“There is nothing really in life that is more important than being a mother, and raising the next generation to be good and kind people,” she said.

Competition forms can be found in this newspaper. They must be filled out and dropped off with your written submission to one of the following locations: The Royal Gazette on Par-la-Ville Road, Hamilton, DEMCO Floral Services on 14 South Road, Devonshire or the Stationery Store on Reid Street.

The deadline is tomorrow. Winners will be announced in our special Mother’s Day supplement on May 2.

You must be registered or signed-in to post comment or to vote.
