Parenting Magazine and Georgetown University are planning the 2012 Mom Congress, and you can be there. This annual event connects mothers who’ve made a difference in their local schools to experts and education advocates in Wasington DC. The three day event takes place from April 29 – May 1, 2012, which is the most gorgeous time to be in the Nation’s Capital. You can enter a contest to be one of the 51 mothers, from each state and the District of Columbia, who wins an all expenses paid trip for the event. All you have to do is submit a photo and a 300 word essay (you can write that much during naptime!) about how you or the mother you are nominating has changed a school for the better. Here’s the form you need to fill out, and here are the contest rules. A much longer first person description can be found right here.
You have to get your submission in before February 15, 2012. If you come, please let me know. Your (Wo)Man in Washington would love to meet you while you are here!
‘Til next time,
Your (Wo)Man in Washington
