4/16/2014 12:40:00 PM Eastern

Irvine, Calif. — Vizio and Walmart kicked off Wednesday the “This One’s For Mom” contest, giving family members the chance to pay tribute to their moms this Mother’s Day.

Through the promotional event, people across the country are encouraged to visit Vizio.com/Mom to upload a video or photo nominating their mom and sharing their personal story of appreciation.

The mom recognized in the winning submission will receive a Vizio Home Theater Gift Package.

Entries can be submitted now through April 22. Consumers are then invited to help Vizio determine winners by voting for their favorite story from April 23-30.

In addition to a complete Vizio home theater — including a 60-inch E-series smart TV and 54-inch 3.0 Home Theater Sound Bar — the grand-prize-winning mom will receive a $500 Walmart gift card, $250 Vudu credit, and an expense-paid trip for two (travel and lodging not to exceed $1,500) to the DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale, CA.

 “This Mother’s Day, we are encouraging everyone to celebrate the women who go above and beyond each day and awarding the winning mom with the surprise of a lifetime,” said Lily Knowles, Vizio product marketing VP. “We’re excited to be teaming up with Walmart to pay tribute to moms across the country and can’t wait for our Vizio fans to help determine which mom is most deserving of the Ultimate Mother’s Day Home Theater Package.” 

Eleven Runner-Ups will receive $100 Walmart gift cards

 The individual who nominates the grand-prize-winning mother will also win a Vizio 32-inch full-array LED smart HDTV (E320Fi-B2), a $100 Walmart gift card and a $50 Vudu movie credit to be used at Vudu.com or the Vudu app.

 Vizio will also donate a 60-inch HDTV (E600i-B3), 54-inch 3.0 Sound Bar (S5430W-C2) and a DreamWorks Blu-ray package consisting of 12 popular movie titles to the Orange County, Calif.-based Miracles for Kids organization.

The non-profit’s mission is to improve the lives of children and families affected by childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

 Members of the Vizio Fandemonium program have the opportunity to earn points by submitting stories about their moms and voting for their favorite submissions. For more information see VizioFanZone.com.
