To celebrate Moms’ ingenuity this Mother’s Day, Whirlpool brand is kicking off the fourth annual Mother of Invention Grant competition.

Beginning on May 11, the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day, and running through July 31, moms may submit their unique business, service or product ideas for consideration at http://www.whirlpool.com/moms . In addition, to recognize moms who develop an environmentally-friendly product/service or use natural/recycled materials to create their invention, the company has added a green category for the first time. Five winners will be announced in September and will receive grant money (up to $20,000), home appliance prizes and an invitation to a business boot camp at Whirlpool headquarters.

Guest judges for the competition include Julie Aigner-Clark, creator of Baby Einstein and co-founder of The Safe Side, a provider of programs to help children stay safe; and Lori Pope, the creator of an innovative green toy rental program, BabyPlays. Rounding out the judging panel will be Mary Anne Amato, the 2006 Mother of Invention Grand Prize Winner and creator of the "Quick Change Crib".

The program closes on July 31, 2008.
