America’s Favorite Mom Contest

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day (May 11), one flower company is looking to crown America’s Favorite Mom.

From now through late April, floral giant Teleflora is accepting submissions for their America’s Favorite Mom contest, with the voting booths open February 1.

On Teleflora Presents America’s Favorite Mom, an hour-long NBC special airing on Mother’s Day, the winning wonder woman will be chosen out of 15 finalists, and lavished with an 18-karat gold pendant and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Teleflora President Shawn Weidmann expects submissions to run the gamut from hilarious to heart-wrenching, but says a sob story isn’t a shoo-in to win the prize.

Weidmann says, “The creativity and inspirational nature of the submission is important, but ultimately the mom is the real hero.”

And while the winning mom will obviously love her lavish gifts, Weidmann says Mother’s Day is a chance for anyone to show some love.

Weidmann says, “Flowers are always the best gift. Flowers ordered through Teleflora!”
