Mother's Day is May 9 this year, and the Pleasanton Weekly and DanvilleSanRamon.com are again holding their popular Mother-Daughter Lookalike Contest, with photos due by noon April 18.
Staff members of the Weekly will choose the eight pairs of finalists, which will be posted on our website from April 20-24 for our readers and their friends to vote on which mother and daughter most look alike. A story announcing the winners is scheduled to appear in the May 7 edition of the Pleasanton Weekly.
In addition to being featured in the Mother's Day cover story, the winners and runners-up will receive special prizes.
Send photos in jpg format (at least 300 dpi) to Dolores Fox Ciardelli at [email protected], along with the names of the mothers and daughters, ages if the daughters are under 18, and any other information you wish to share. Previous winners are not eligible to compete again.
Don't put off sending in your photo. Every year we receive entries too late, after the preliminary judging is done.
'1 Small Act'
Pleasanton Unified School District officials are encouraging people to support the environment by engaging in one small act this month, with the goal of reaching 10,000 small acts by Earth Day on April 22.
PUSD officials said the "1 Small Act" campaign "is designed to encourage the community to think of the small actions they can do in their everyday lives that will help the earth. Each small act can be done just once or for the rest of the year." People can challenge their friends, family or colleagues to take part as well.
To participate, students, staff, families and community members can share details about their small act at pusdedu.info/1smallact or via social media by using the hashtag #PUSD1SmallAct for the chance to win eco-friendly swag supported by the Go Green Initiative.

A follow-up to the recent CAP 2.0 webinar workshop, the survey will remain open online through April 20. It can be accessed via this link
