Is there a Dad in your life who is #1?
If you know America’s Most Deserving Dad, Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast is looking for him!
Through May 20th, mothers and children from all across the country can nominate a deserving Dad for the title and official grand prize!

All you have to do is create a video telling the world in one minute or less why their dad or husband warrants the honor and grand-prize. All videos can be submitted on the Emerald Coast Facebook page until May 20. Once uploaded, voting begins and entrants are encouraged to share the video on the web, as well as with family and friends, in order to accumulate votes – one vote per day, per user.
The grand-prize winner will be revealed on Father’s Day, June 17, and officially named ‘America’s Most Deserving Dad.’ The top 10 videos as voted on by the general population will go to a panel comprised of members from the Emerald Coast Tourist Development Council, where the winning video – determined by the criteria: 50 percent originality and 50 percent creativity – will be selected.
“We are extremely pleased to announce the launch of this national campaign, encouraging and challenging families to tell us, ‘Who is America’s Most Deserving Dad?’” commented Emerald Coast CVB President and CEO Mark Bellinger. “The natural platform for this campaign derived from the overwhelming success of last year’s ‘Most Deserving Mom’ campaign. Our continued focus is on the appreciation of families, as Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast is a destination that brings joy to families that visit our beaches year after year.”
Named one of the “Top 10 Most Beautiful Places” by Good Morning America, Florida’s Emerald Coast is famous for 24 miles of sugar-white sands and emerald-green waters. Year-round, vacationers indulge in simple pleasures – from the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” and spirited beachside celebrations to challenging holes golf and 13,000 Gulf-edged accommodations.
Will you be entering the contest for the #1 Dad in your life? If you, do be sure to let me know!
