Carmel Valley moms/kids finalists in ‘Best Moms’ contest

This coming Mother’s Day weekend, 50 “stand out” moms will receive acknowledgement at an awards ceremony and luncheon.

For the 11th straight year, Time Warner Cable asked students in grades 4 through 12 to write essays telling why their mom is one of the best. In addition to essay submissions, Time Warner Cable’s Best Moms Contest welcomed video entries in an effort to inspire the development of students’ science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills.

Nearly 2,000 essays and videos were submitted by students throughout San Diego County, which were then judged by a panel of local journalists and elected officials.  Out of those, 50 rose to the top and these finalists, their “Best Moms,” teachers and invited guests will celebrate the honor at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla on May 12. This year, some of the honorees include: grandmothers, foster mothers, fathers, cancer survivors, military moms and many more.

Moms will be showered with gifts from sponsors and three students (one from elementary school, one from middle school and one from high school) will receive a Sony Tablet S.

In addition, the winning students’ teachers each receive a $250 gift card for supplies for their classrooms. The student winners will be awarded at the luncheon and excerpts from the winning entries will be read or viewed.

Carmel Valley finalists are:

•Deana Lytle (Mother), Spencer Lytle (Child)

•Joan Mei (Mother), Meilong Zhang (Child)

•Soo Jean Park (Mother), Chae Hyun Lee (Child)

•Ying Qu (Mother), Victoria K. Li (Child)
