[title]

Zarbee's Inc., the fastest-growing all natural cough remedy in the country, today announced the official launch of its Hilarious MOMents Contest, designed to celebrate the funny and hilarious moments that parents experience while raising children. Kicking off today, parents can submit their personal anecdotes through Zarbee's Facebook page for the chance to win a $10,000 dream family vacation.

"The journey of parenthood is defined by the moments spent raising children, so Zarbee's wants to hear about the memorable experiences that have caused parents to laugh out loud, or even cry," says Dr. Zak Zarbock, pediatrician, founder of Zarbee's, and father of four. "Whether a disastrous mess, embarrassing public moment, or a gag-inducing story, moms, and dads have seen it all and these 'MOM'ents deserve to be recognized and celebrated."

Zarbee's is using the popular social media site, Facebook, to engage its current 140,000 fans to kick off the virtual contest. Parents are encouraged to become fans of the Zarbee's Facebook page and submit their Hilarious MOMents directly through the site. To qualify to win, parents need to collect at least 1,000 points throughout the duration of the contest, which can be accomplished by posting a MOMent or inviting friends to join in the fun. They can return daily to:

>>Earn 100 points per MOMent shared

>>Earn 75 points for a Facebook "Recommend" – similar to clicking the "Like" button, give Hilarious MOMents a thumbs up!

>>Earn 50 points per friend invited

>>Earn 25 points each time someone clicks on the special contest link

In addition, moms can also earn Zarbee's "Bee Badges." The more points collected, the more badges a parent will be awarded. The coveted 5,000 point "Bee Badge" will acknowledge the parent who has seen it all during the journey through parenthood.

Final winner selection will be made by the Zarbee's team from qualifying entries once the contest concludes on November 4th and the winning MOMent will be judged on a combination of originality, humor and popularity. Winners will be notified by email and announced on Facebook within 30 days once the contest ends. The grand prize of a $10,000 dream family vacation to the destination of her choice will be awarded to one lucky mom. Additionally, one runner up will receive a $300 "staycation" to escape the crazy MOMents in life and another runner up will have her home cleaned from top to bottom (a $200 value).
