America’s Top Sitter Contest


by Linda Castillo

Most of us have a sitter that we trust with our kids so that we can enjoy a night away with our hubby every once in awhile. You know you have a great sitter when the kids’ faces light up upon their arrival. Perhaps, your sitter will bake special treats with the kids or play their favorite games with them. And for those reasons, for many of us, our sitters are not just a part-time worker but they have become a part of the family. Let everyone know that your sitter is the best and enter them into America’s Top Sitter contest for a chance to win $5,000.

But hurry to nominate your favorite sitter because the contest ends February, 25, 2013 at 11:59 pm (EST).  Simply go to Sittercity’s Facebook page to submit a picture of your sitter with an explanation why your sitter totally rocks in 200 words or less. Everyone will be able to see your favorite sitter on Sittercity’s Facebook page and a panel of experts will choose the top ten finalists. If you sitter is selected as the top ten finalists, from March 5-15 the Sittercity Facebook community will vote the winner.
