Making your meals, driving you to and from school, offering a helping hand with homework and a whole lot more – do you ever actually stop to think just how much mums actually do for us?
We think it’s high time that these superheroes in disguise get the credit they deserve and that is why Y Magazine has teamed up with Puck to show the mums of Muscat just how much they are loved by their children in a special competition to coincide with Mother’s Day in the GCC, which is celebrated on March 21.
This is the second edition of the competition and last year saw our boxes inundated with hundreds of entries as children across the capital put their feelings down on paper, proving why, in their opinion, their mum was the best in the world.
It’s not just the title of Muscat’s Best Mum that is on the line. Thanks to Puck, there will be goodie bags and cash prizes for the top three entries, with RO200 going to first place, RO100 for second and RO50 for third. If this isn’t motivation enough to show your love, then we don’t know what is – just think of all the treats you could buy your mum as a thank you.
To enter this year, you’ll need to be 16 or under. Just pick up a special card, available in next week’s issue of Y Magazine, and fill it with a heartfelt message of love for your mum.
Remember, our judges will be selecting the winners based on content and display, so don’t be afraid to really let your creative juices flow. Last year, we received poems, drawings, touching words and simple displays of gratitude for mums just being themselves.
Look out for the A5 card in next week’s issue of Y. Complete your entry, being as creative as you like with words and pictures, and drop it into one of the specially designated boxes at all Gloria Jean’s Coffees outlets around the city, Markaz Al Bahja Mall and Panorama Mall.
More details to follow next week.
