How do I nominate someone for the Fabulous Mother of the Year™?
A nomination is easy. To nominate someone, just fill out the nomination form located on the nominations page of this website. You just need your nominee's name, contact information and to answer five brief questions explaining why you think they should be considered for the Fabulous Mother of the Year™. Then, an email will be sent out to them telling them they have been nominated. Once they accept the nomination, they will be entered into the contest.
Can I nominate more than one person?
Yes, you can nominate as many people as you'd like.
Will the nominees be told who nominated them?
Yes, the nominees will be told that they were nominated and by whom. After that, they are required to sign a form accepting their nomination to move further into the selection process.
The person I want to nominate lives outside of Alberta, are they eligible?
No. While we are planning to expand the Fabulous Mother of the Year™ across the country and globally in coming years, due to limited resources at this time, only nominees who are residents of Alberta are eligible. People who are interested in helping us expand this fundraiser to other regions are encouraged to contact us. Please note, only Fabulous Mother of the Year™ fundraisers that benefit non-profit organizations addressing the needs of kids with ADHD will be considered.
I don't live in Alberta, can I still nominate someone for the Fabulous Mother of the Year™?
Yes, nominations can come from anywhere in the world. Only the nominees must be an Alberta resident.
I received an e-mail saying I was nominated, what do I do now?
Congratulations, someone has nominated you for the Fabulous Mother of the Year™! To accept the nomination you must fill out the nominee acceptance form provided to you in the email received telling you that you were nominated. Simply follow the link and complete the form. When you have completed it, you should receive an e-mail confirming that it was received. At that point, you will have been entered into the contest and will be contacted with further information about the process.
Is this some kind of a beauty pageant?
No. Outward appearance, ethnicity, sexual orientation, marital status, religion and age are not factors in this contest. The only criteria are that they are Albertan women and mothers.
How will contestants be judged?
Contestants are judged on their inspiration, life philosophy, unfailing love, strength of character, inner beauty and outward charm.
Why isn't there a Fabulous Father of the Year™ contest?
We agree that there are fabulous fathers out there, who deserve recognition as well. In the future, we are planning to hold a Fabulous Father of the Year™ contest as well. However, due to our currently limited resources, we are simply getting the ball rolling with the Fabulous Mother of the Year™ contest first. People who are interested in helping us launch the Fabulous Father of the Year™ are encouraged to contact us. Please note, only Fabulous Father of the Year™ fundraisers that benefit non-profit organizations addressing the needs of kids with ADHD will be considered.
