We announce the winner of our Mother's Day contest.
To honor mothers around Montgomery County, Patch asked users to upload photos of their moms and leave a comment about what makes them so great. The heartfelt expressions of love and gratitude made it too hard to choose, so Patch randomly chose a winner. And the winner of our best mom contest is... drumroll, please... Nneka St. Gerard. Her husband, Henroit, nominated his wife for the contest! Nneka will receive a $50 VISA gift card. Look for a post later on Patch that showcases photos of moms throughout the state of Maryland. Thank you to all of the entrants and Patch wishes all of the local moms a happy Mother's Day! Just because the contest is over doesn't mean it's too late to share your best memories. Upload photos and videos or tell …
