San Diego's 50 Best Moms Contest by Time Warner Cable

For the last five years, I've had the honor to be involved with and support Time Warner Cable's San Diego's 50 Best Moms Contest recognizing mother's who go above and beyond the call of mother duty.


This year marks the 10th anniversary of this noble community program, and March 5th is the last day to get those essays in! Hurry into any of the locations mentioned below to pick up the one-page application or download it from the TWC link.


“Every mom is special, but some truly stand out and deserve to be recognized for the sacrifices and dedication they’ve made for their children and their families. Time Warner Cable wants to know who they are. For the 10th straight year, Time Warner Cable is calling on students in grades 4 through 12 to write essays of 150 to 500 words telling why their mom should be named one of San Diego’s 50 Best Moms.


Past student essay winners include nominations for their moms, fathers, grandparents or others playing the role of “mom” in their life. Who knows what this year will bring? The essays will be judged by a panel of local journalists, politicians and teachers who will select the 50 Best Moms for 2011 based on the children’s explanation of why they believe their mom is the best. The writers of three essays – one from each school level: elementary, middle and high school – will be awarded a new Sony VAIO laptop computer. In addition, the winning students’ teachers will also each receive a $250 gift card for supplies for their classrooms.


The San Diego’s 50 Best Moms contest, presented by Time Warner Cable, received 3,600 essays last year. The contest will run from February 1 through March 5, 2011. Essay forms can be downloaded online at by clicking on the 50 Best Moms logo or you may go to one of the following locations:


*All Time Warner Cable retail locations

Each winning mom will be honored at a special luncheon on Saturday, May 7 where they will receive an award and gifts generously donated by sponsors throughout San Diego.

    I love my mom. She’s my hero, and I honestly believe that she deserves the best this Mother’s Day. So may I enter the contest as well? I live about an hour or two away from San Diego, but we go there a lot anyway.
