Announcement about Mom of the Year:

An important announcement about the Mom of the Year contest: On March 1st, Columbus Parent launched its 2011 Mom of the Year contest, using pre-tested Facebook and Twitter tools to record votes. Effective March 4th, Facebook changed the functionality of its voting tool, enabling a user to use “Share” or “Like” , and subsequently tabulated votes more than once. Columbus Parent was not aware of this change until March 28. It was determined that the standing vote currently displayed could not be changed without disabling the entire voting mechanism. Thus, voting for the 2011 Mom of the Year contest will end at 12 noon on Thursday, March 31. At that time, the management team at Columbus Parent will review the results. Based on an analysis of those results, a final decision will be made and announced the morning of Friday, April 1. Columbus Parent regrets that this glitch occurred and would like to thank those who made us aware of the change.
