CONTEST: Mommy Needs a Makeover—Win One from Patch

Does your mom deserve a day of primping and pampering? Tell us why and win her the ultimate Mother's Day spa and salon package.

Thank you for your entries! The contest is now closed. 


Is your mom the best? Want to show her off? Now you can—and you can win her a Mother’s Day to top them all. All you have to do is tell us what makes your mom the greatest, for a chance at winning her a total makeover courtesy of Patch and our sponsors. One day each year is officially set aside for showing mom some love, but why not start early? You could win her a full salon and spa package from  in Tinley Park, or a personal fitness package from Body by Reggie. Oh, and of course there will be flowers, courtesy of  in Oak Forest. 


SHARE A VIDEO of you telling us why your mom deserves a day of pampering and relaxation by clicking on the "Upload Photos and Videos" button on this article.

Tell us what makes your mom special. Maybe she has never missed one of your band concerts or football games. Or she still makes you chicken noodle soup when you’re a little under the weather (even though you’re 35 years old). Every time you visit home, is your favorite meal waiting on the table? Or she offers to babysit the kids so you can have a night out with your significant other. Aww, she’s the best, isn’t she?

Just tell us why in a video, but keep it 2 minutes or shorter, and don’t miss our deadline! 

OR you can upload a photo of you and your mom and tell us in the comments what makes your mom the greatest of all.

Once your video or photo is shared on the site, you're entered to win the grand prize. A panel of Patch judges will review the entries and select the winners. 

Our deadline is May 9.

OK, now for the rules (that's right, we gotta have rules):

  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia.
  • To enter, upload a video or photo that tells us why you love your mom. Keep the video 2 minutes or shorter, and if you upload a photo, don’t forget to tell us about mom in the comments.
  • All entries must be received by noon, May 9, Chicago time.
  • You may enter once.
  • One (1) Grand Prize Winner will receive a full salon/spa day. Approximate Retail Value: $450.
  • If you crave more legalese, read our .

In the picture is my mom (Valerie) & me dancing. I'm not gonna say she's the greatest mom in the world because we all have our own opinions on a "World's Greatest Mom," but my mom is the greatest for me. She had me when she was 17, so I was unplanned, but she made the best of it. I now have 2 planned siblings; Devin (17) & Abby (7). My dad works nights, which is when a mother is needed more in my opinion. So my mom does a lot of work with me & my siblings, stressful homework, dinner, etc. I think she needs a spa day & I can't give that to her myself. I'm an aspiring filmmaker, so I don't have much money, which she also supports. Please help me give my mom an awesome gift.
