In addition to a complete VIZIO home theater, the Grand Prize winning mom will receive four tickets to the premiere of “Turbo,” the latest film from DreamWorks Animation in theaters July 17th. “Turbo” is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an ordinary snail who dares to dream big – and fast.  After a freak accident infuses him with the power of super-speed, Turbo kicks into overdrive and embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the seemingly impossible: competing in the world's fastest race.  With the help of his tricked-out streetwise snail crew, this ultimate underdog puts his heart and shell on the line to prove that no dream is too big, and no dreamer too small.

The “Win It For Mom” contest will be promoted via VIZIO social channels. Submitters are encouraged to share on their own social networks using the hash tag #WinItForMom to promote their unique story.  Once winners are selected, the winning submitters will be notified and the stage will be set to “surprise” the Grand Prize winning mom in their hometown.
