CALLING ALL STUDENTS!! Essay Contest to Name the 50 Best Moms in San Diego

*** Essays Accepted February 15 to March 15 ***

Release Date: 02/18/2008

SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – Every mom is special, but some truly standout 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. Now in its seventh year, Time Warner Cable is calling students in grades four through 12 to write essays of 150 to 500 words telling why their mom should be one of the best in San Diego County.

In the past, essays have come in from San Diego kids with moms of all kinds – even a father and grandmother! 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 2008 based on the children’s explanation and why they believe their mom is the best. The writers of the three best essays will receive a new Sony VAIO laptop computer. There will be a winner from each school level: elementary, middle and high school. In addition, the winning students’ teachers will receive a $250 gift card for supplies for their classrooms.

The San Diego’s 50 Best Moms contest, presented by Time Warner Cable and radio partner STAR 94.1 FM, will run from February 15 through March 15, 2008. 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 Mission Federal Credit Union branch locations
• All Time Warner Cable offices in San Diego County
• All Ultra Star Cinemas locations

Each winning mom will be honored at a special luncheon on Saturday, May 10 where they will receive an award and gifts generously donated by sponsors throughout San Diego.
