We know that women in public office bring their life experiences to the task of policymaking, which is why it's so urgent that we elect more women -- and more moms -- to Congress.

To raise the visibility of this year's record 163 women nominees for the US House, The 2012 Project, where I'm campaign manager, is sponsoring a contest to predict the number of women elected to Congress. Our goal is to hit 20 percent women in Congress, which means electing 87 women total in the House on Election Day. How many women do you think will serve in the next Congress?

Don't miss the chance to win fabulous prizes -- a $250 American Express gift card, Nespresso coffee machine, or a Lifetime gift basket that includes a personalized iPod shuffle.

Enter The 2012 Project's Pick the Number of Women Elected to Congress contest and also pass it on to your friends. On Nov. 6, keep track of your entry with a state by state Women's Election Night Scorecard that is organized by polling closing times. Check back for details at

Good luck! Here's to many more women in office.
