Mother's Day is May 11.
While that may seem like a long time away, this request could take some time to complete. We want you to tell us: "This is What Makes My Mom Great."
In years past, we've asked you to write about your mom and dad. Things changed in 2013 when we adapted the format and asked you to submit a video showing "What Makes My Dad Great." Napoleon's Emma Bowers told us about her dad through a 30-second video presentation and won $50.
This year, it's mom's turn. The Crescent-News is asking you to create a video about your mom with the theme "This is What Makes My Mom Great." Your video can be up to two minutes in length. We're encouraging you to be as creative as possible, too.
The winning mom will receive a floral arrangement and a $50 certificate to a business of her choice.
To be eligible: Your mom must live within our coverage area of Defiance, Henry, Paulding, Fulton, Putnam or Williams counties; and you or your mother must be a C-N subscriber.
How to enter: You may stop at the C-N office (at 624 W. Second St.) and drop off a DVD that includes the video; or we can pull the video off your flash drive.
If the video is under 2 MB, you may send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can mail the DVD to The Crescent-News, Mother's Day Video Contest, 624 W. Second St., Defiance 43512.
What we need: Your name, address and phone number; and your mom's name and phone number. We would also like a photo of your mom, which you can send to the email address. We will accept videos until 5 p.m. April 25. All acceptable videos will appear on the video section of crescent-news.com on Mother's Day.
