Mothers accomplish the extraordinary every day, but expectations for these ladies are so high that those good deeds often go unnoticed. Honoring that spirit of selflessness and sacrifice has defined our organization since 1935.

“Mothers accomplish the extraordinary every day, but expectations for these ladies are so high that those good deeds often go unnoticed,” says Joan Braitsch, President of American Mothers. “Honoring that spirit of selflessness and sacrifice has defined our organization since 1935, and we look forward to the 80th class of honorees.”
Previous winners include women who founded international charities as well as adoptive mothers who raised underprivileged children. American Mothers was founded in 1935 by Sara Delano Roosevelt, JC Penney, and Norman Vincent Peale (as well as notable support from Mamie Eisenhower), and has honored a Mother of the Year annually.
Each state winner is a finalist for the National Mother of the Year awards, which will be announced at the annual AMI convention in Washington DC on April 23-26, 2015.
