Mother's Day is just around the corner, and the City of Humboldt wants to give one lucky mother a very special day. 

The Give Your Mom A Break Mother’s Day Contest has begun, sponsored by the City of Humboldt, Diamonds of Detroit, Sobeys, Boston Pizza, and Bolt Cleaners to show appreciation for mothers. 

“It is an essay/poem contest; the prize value is approximately $500. In that prize value there are five weekday supper meals for a family of five, a house yard cleaning package and a jewelry package,” stated Andrea Tonn, Recreation and Community Events Coordinator. 

The essay/poem submission has a maximum of 200 words, with photos of submissions accepted. Those looking to enter can send the submission to and must include the mother's name, phone number, and name of the person submitting.

The deadline to enter is May 6, at 12:00 pm, with the draw taking place May 6, at 3:00 pm.
