Shaping, molding and nurturing one of the country’s most important resources, our children, is no small feat, and is one that requires patience, perseverance and passion. Through countless hours, Canadian mothers play many different roles, and display courage and self-sacrifice that deem them real life heroes to their families and the communities in which they serve. They’re the caretakers, the confidantes, the diaper-changers, and the decision-makers. Walmart’s Mom of the Year is a way for all of us to recognize the Moms in our lives and say thank you for everything they do.
She is also great at harnessing “unexpected creativity” and finding great ways for her girls to “help” in any task she is doing at the moment. Not only is she a fantastic mom to her girls, she is also a great aunt to my children!
Walmart Canada is once again running the Mom of the Year Award, giving people across the country the opportunity to recognize the enormous contribution mothers make to their families and to their communities.
Between now and May 23rd, you have the chance to recognize a deserving Mom by nominating her for Mom of the Year. Once the nomination period closes, 20 top candidates will be chosen. Out of these 20 candidates, the Mom who receives the most votes from Canadians like yourself will be guaranteed a spot as one of our Mom of the Year winners. The Selection Committee will then choose five other winners – one for each of the following categories:
- Environmental Superstar
- Community Champion
- Smart Saver
- Loving Caregiver
- Everyday Hero
Each finalist will receive $10,000 to spend on themselves and $10,000 for the charity or cause of their choice. (Finalists that are not selected for a Mom of the Year title will receive $500 for themselves and $500 for the charity of their choice.)
Nominations for the Walmart Canada Mom of the Year Award close on May 23, 2014.
