Nominate an Awesome Dad for our Father’s Day Contest

Nominate an Awesome Dad for our Father’s Day Contest

Father’s Day is this Sunday, and we want to honor 5 inspiring dads who deserve to be acknowledged for all their awesomeness by giving them a chance to win a special treat.

As promised, our #YoureMyHero Contest is back for another round – this time it’s the Father’s Day edition! (Get the full scoop on why we created this contest here.)

Dads are our invincible protectors, yet they always know how to bring the fun and silliness. They teach you how to do cool stuff to impress your friends. And they often don’t get the credit they deserve.

So, let’s give a big kudos to an awesome dad in your life by nominating them for our contest.

You’re My Hero Award, Father’s Day Edition

Here’s how it’s gonna work:

  1. Nominate an awesome dad – it can be your dad, your kids’ dad, your brother, your grandson, you get the idea – in your life by posting a photo of him on Instagram.
  2. In the description, start with this sentence: “I want to nominate [name of an incredible dad] for @cooksmarts #YoureMyHero #FathersDay contest.“ Then tell us why this dad inspires you and why they deserve to be treated to a $100 Visa gift card.
  3. If your Instagram profile isn’t public, no problem. Just make sure you’re following @cooksmarts on Instagram and share the post directly with us, so that we can find it!
  4. Make your nominations by Saturday, 6/18, 11:59 PM PST.

We’ll read through all the entries and select the 5 that moved us the most by the following week. We’ll repost the winning stories and photos on our blog and our Instagram, and get in touch with winners via their original post.

Whether you participate in the award or not, remember that it’s Father’s Day this weekend – share a warm thought about your dad with someone!

Here are the stories of the dad heroes in our community who are making life better for their families one meal at a time.

Happy Father’s Day!
