GE Appliances has narrowed our search down to 10 candidates, one of whom will ultimately be named the Great American Grandma. Each of the 10 impressed our search committee with their energy, creativity, camera presence, storytelling ability, spunk and more.

Click through to each video, watch all 10, then go like, share or comment on your favorites to show them some love! (And you must be nice! Remember – Grandma is watching!)

The final winner will be announced during the first week of April (and no, not on April Fool's Day). But we will also give many of our applicants the opportunity to take part in future Great American Grandma projects, so stay tuned. Our Grandma will be hired part-time for a 10-15 hour per month gig, sharing the secrets of great recipes... of food, fun and family. The job will include:

  • $50,000 salary
  • Will receive 5 brand new, top-of-the-line GE Appliances kitchen products
  • Serve as a social media spokesperson on GE Appliances channels
