We encourage you to visit the contest site and click on “View Entries and Vote.” You can then watch the six inspiring videos that we received from our participants and vote for your favorite one by clicking “vote” and connecting to Facebook.
You can also share your favorite video on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ or by e-mail. Our hashtag for the contest is #FederalHeroMoms.
Voting will stay open through May 6.
The contestant with the video that receives the highest number of votes will win a $1,000 Amazon gift card. Harris Federal also will award a pair of $100 Amazon gift cards as runner-up prizes.
We will announce our winners during Public Servant Recognition Week and right before Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 10.
The goal of our contest has been to show our appreciation for the thousands of female federal employees who not only keep our nation running – they keep their families running, too.
The entries you can choose from are:
- Bennett (Age 4, Michigan) – Bennett says his mom, who works for the U.S. Postal Service, is a hero “because I love her.”
- Gavin (Age 4, California) – Gavin says his mom is a federal hero because, in addition to her job with the U.S. Postal Service employee, she takes the time to “do everything” with him.
- Kayla (Age 6, California) – Kayla says her mom, who works with the Naval Postgraduate School, makes her “feel strong and healthy” and is always there to give her lots of kisses, sing her lullabies and fix a boo-boo.
- Jenna (Age 9, Florida) – Jenna says her mom is a federal hero because she fought for her country and, today, fights for women’s equality in the federal workforce as a member of the Federally Employed Women non-profit organization and in her role with the Naval Surface Warfare Center.
- Jala (Age 20, Mississippi) – Jala describes how her mom has been a hero throughout her 29 years as a research chemist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, helping to ensure that people and the environment are safe.
- Camryn (Age 12, D.C.) – Camryn says her mom, who works with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is a hero because she served in the U.S. Army and now helps federal agencies to support employees and working families – while still having the time for Camryn and her brother.
Remember: Voting ends May 6 – so don’t wait to pick your favorite video!
