CONTEST: Is Your Mom the Best in Baltimore 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 Baltimore County.  

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

Tell us why your mom is the best in Baltimore County.

My mom has been gone for almost 28 years. Her memory is instilled in my mind. She was a good soul, willing to give to her kids when she herself did not at times have a lot. We had a nice home, good food all made from scratch,nice clothing and most of all her constant love. In her old age, I was a good daughter and helped her to do things that needed to be done. I still miss you Mom, you were the best. Elita Sohmer Clayman

In my eyes, my mom is the best because she always treats everyone she meets with respect and kindness, no matter who they are. She gives generously of herself to the world and always welcomes me to be by her side.

I've read these comments, and the words under the pictures...my mom isn't any of those things. She's crude, rude, obnoxious, and sometimes down right childish. But, she's my role model of how a real person is in this tough world; maybe she can't cook a darn thing, and maybe she's a little rough around the edges, but she's my mother...and, even if somehow I could, I wouldn't trade her for any other mother on this planet.

My mom was to good for this world. That's why the good Lord took her to a better place. You were and still are the best mom here or there. Happy mothers day mom. Love you.

My Mother, Mary Johnson, is a cancer survivor, a teacher for behaviorally/emotionally challenged children (for 30 years), a church missionary, and the best mom anyone could ever ask for! Over the past year, my mom has shown that she will do anything for anyone and nothing will stop her, and she has. Last year, I was diagnosed with an advanced staged breast cancer. My mother has been by my side every step of the way, while working full-time and taking care of my sister who has been in and out of the hospital for diabetes related illnesses for the past 6 months.She has assisted me financially, while paying her own expenses.
