Calling all student mothers

The iDream network is asking community members to pay homage to hardworking student mothers and recent college graduates.

The iDream network has made a habit of calling attention to student mothers who are challenged with balancing self-care, work and family life while pursuing a higher education.  iDream views these women as African-American, biracial, or multi-ethnic women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. In their experience, these women are at the most risk for poor birth outcomes, chronic stress and early onset preventable illnesses.

The organization created the first annual S.M.A.R.T. (Student Mothers Achieving Rightful Tribute) Moms Award in hopes of acknowledging the efforts of well-deserving women in the community.

Online nominations for the 1st annual S.M.A.R.T Moms Award will close on April 25, 2013. The organization plans to name 10 finalist and then pick one Student Mother of the Year on May 1st.
