The 2017 Kids Cover Contest Is Now Open

The 2017 Kids Cover Contest Is Now Open


Our annual Kids Cover Contest is now open! Enter your child, ages 2-16, for a chance to see him or her on a cover of our magazines, and to win amazing prizes.

This year, the contest will have 10 finalists--nine chosen by our editors, and one Fan Favorite (the entrant who receives the most votes). All 10 will participate in a professional photo shoot and might be featured on an upcoming magazine cover.

We will choose two grand prize winners, both of whom will be guaranteed to appear on a cover! One of them will win a Barbizon scholarship and phoot shoot and the other will get a two-night stay at Kalahari Resort, the country's largest indoor water park. The Fan Favorite will receive four tickets to Sesame Place.

How the Kids Cover Contest Works

1)   Go to nymetroparents.com/cover and follow the instructions there to upload a photo of your child and enter the contest. You can also get there by going to our Facebook page, facebook.com/nymetroparents and clicking the Kids Cover Contest tab.

2)   After you’ve entered, ask your friends and family to vote for your cutie. You’ll get a direct link to your child’s voting space when you enter, or anyone can go to the links above, find your child, and vote.
