NYMetroParents is proud to announce the 8 finalists and the winner of the 2016 Kids Cover Contest, who were professionally photographed at PhotoOp NYC in late June.
More than 1,700 entries were submitted for NYMetroParents 2016 Kids Cover Contest, with parents from all over the New York Metro area sharing adorable pictures of their children for a chance to win a coveted spot on our magazines' cover as well as the grand prize, a weekend getaway at Great Wolf Lodge.
The winner received a weekend getaway with their family to Great Wolf Lodge and the Fan Favorite received a family four-pack of tickets to Sesame Place. All finalists won $25 gift cards from Appaman, a New York CityPASS ticket book worth $114 each, plus inclusion in a future print issue.
Here they are, folks!
