CONTEST ALERT: “My Mom Rocks! WYAAP’s Tribute to Mothers”

You may already be aware that Mother’s Day is just around the corner. So in the spirit of this celebration, WYAAP decided to make a tribute to all our moms! After all, they play an important role in our families. And as our Declaration on the Family says, it is in the family where we first come to understand our own intrinsic and inviolable human dignity.

On May 10th, 2009, we will be putting up an online gallery containing pictures and testimonials of how real mothers were able to touch lives and help make real the experience of human dignity – as told by their own children!

Gathering of entries starts today. The best entries will make it to the online gallery, and the top 3 (as judged by our WYAAP staff) will get surprises! So come on, tell the world why your mom rocks!

Simply send in a jpeg photo and a 250-word (maximum) paragraph about why your mom rocks (that is, how she taught you about or made you experience your own human dignity). Email to by midnight of May 9 to become eligible to win the top 3 prizes. Entries submitted May 10 onwards can still get a chance to be featured in our online gallery so don’t worry 🙂

The contest to open to all youth (by WYA definition, anyone under 30 years old), and both members and non-members of WYA are welcome to contribute. Only one entry per person.

Winners will be notified via an official email from our staff.
