Do you know a mom deserving of a little recognition (and swag)? We all know it's the toughest job you'll ever love and that's why Columbus Parent wants to honor moms.

Starting Monday, Feb. 14, we'll be accepting nominations for the 2011 Mom of the Year contest. Just log onto to find the online entry form: You'll need to fill out a form, telling who your nominee is and why she deserves to win, and then submit your nomination with a photo.

We'll take nominations through Feb. 28. Then, on March 1, we'll announce our five finalists. You'll then be able to vote (once per person, please) from March 1-31, using the Like feature on our Facebook page.

We'll announce a winner on April 1 and that winner will be featured in the May issue of Columbus Parent. So get ready to nominate this Monday!
