Give your mom the ultimate Mother's Day gift! Women play a critical role as wives and moms but also contribute to farm operations and rural communities. If you have a great farm mom, or know of one, enter her in the America's Farmers Mom of the Year contest. Sponsored by Monsanto Company, the contest will award five regional winners a $5,000 cash prize.
One of the five winners will then be selected the week before Mother's Day as the America's Farmers Mom of the Year based on online voting on the America's Farmers Web site and receive an additional $2,500 prize. Go to www.AmericasFarmers.com
to sign up your farm mom for the contest. The regional winners will be chosen based on submissions that describe how each nominee embodies the values and hard work that make up the family farm way of life.
