About Us

Recognizing the Admirable Mother: A Symbol of Unconditional Love, Inner Strength, and National Inspiration

The idea of a Mothers Committee began in 1931 when Eleanor Roosevelt announced the formation of a nation-wide program for the better observance of Mother’s Day that would help dependent mothers and needy children. Sponsored by J.C. Penney’s Golden Rule Foundation, the Golden Rule Mother’s Day Committee established a fund to promote a “Golden Rule observance of Mother’s Day.”

American Mothers has been honoring mothers since 1935.

We select a state honoree from every part of the country and then name a National Mother of the Year® at the annual National Convention of American Mothers. Nominate an inspirational mom in your life who’s harnessing her maternal energy to impact the lives of people around her!
