The promoters say the contest honors Grandmothers who have positively influenced their grandchildren and embody the common sense, family values which gave Missouri its reputation as the show me state.

Each winning Grandmother receives $500 in cash, plus a $250 donation to the charity of her choice.

Winners are based on a one-page typewritten essay, with the entry deadline August 1st. Winners are to be announced August 12th with prizes are to be presented at an awards ceremony and dinner gala at Marceline September 10th.
