Ultimate Mom and Daughter Contest

Grand Prize Winners!

Congratulations to our winners, Deidre and Carrie Smith!

Winner Deidre and CarrieWe love that Deidre and Carrie, who live in Pennsylvania, wake up 15 minutes early just so they can enjoy a few extra minutes reading together. They also read together before bed. Deidre says, “Of course we get carried away sometimes and Daddy reminds us that someone needs their sleep!”

We learned something valuable from almost every mother-daughter pair who entered the contest—and we think you should learn from each other, too! We’ll be sharing at least one tip each day from mother-daughter pairs on our new Facebook fan page. Learn how other mothers and daughters make time for each other, keep the lines of communication open, and enjoy each other’s company!

We’ll be announcing the semi-finalists on our DiscoverYourDaughter.com Facebook fan page, too! To find out if you and your daughter were chosen, become a fan now and check back often! (Semi-finalists receive the Fab Girls book series and Discovery Girls T-shirts!)
