CONTEST: Is Your Mom the Best in Fairfax County?

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



This contest is now closed and we'll be notifying our winner shortly!

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 Fairfax County.  

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

This is FUNNY! My mother was born in 1891 and she was the bestest there ever was! End of contest!

That is actually a good idea. Libelous and cruel, but good! :)

From Twitter: mikemosswtop: @BurkePatch She's the best in the whole wide world, he said stretching his arms as far apart as possible.

I'll be happy if my kids just remember to send a card!
