FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I submit more than one nomination?

Yes. If you know more than one single mother who has done an amazing job and has a story worth highlighting, you are very welcome to submit more than one nomination. The judging committee does not know how many nominees any one applicant has submitted, nor does it positively or negatively affect the outcome in any way.

Can single dads apply too?

We recognize that single dads who are raising children alone can have amazing stories and many are doing an exemplary job in raising their children. However, in keeping with the primary mission of our organization in seeing no single mom walking alone, this award is designed specifically for single mothers. This does not in any way diminish our support of single fathers or reflect any less significance to their role in children’s’ lives.

Submission Deadline: May 4, 2018 by 5 p.m.
