The 2019 Cover Kids Contest is Now Open!

The 2019 Cover Kids Contest is Now Open!

Ten finalists will be chosen for a photo shoot, and your child could be on our covers!

Our 2019 Cover Kids 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.

How the Cover Kids Contest Works

Go to 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, and clicking the Kids Cover Contest tab.

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. The 2019 Cover Kids Contest is open now through 11:59pm on Wednesday, June 12, 2019.

Finalists and Winners

There are 10 finalists in all: We, the editors of NYMetroParents, will choose nine of them, and the 10th is the Fan Favorite, who is the winner of the voting. All 10 will participate in a professional photo shoot—with outfits from Macy's Backstage—and have a chance at getting their photo on a magazine cover, among other prizes. The two Grand-Prize Winners are guaranteed to be Cover Kids!

Prizes for Winners

This year, we will select two Grand-Prize Winners, in addition to the Fan Favorite: one ages 6 and younger and one older than 6. The Fan Favorite (winner of the public voting) and Grand-Prize Winner (chosen by our editors) in the 6 and younger category will each win a two-night stay, along with two Paw Passes, at Great Wolf Lodge in Scotrun, PA. We have yet to announce the prize for the Grand-Prize Winner in the older than 6 category, but we promise it will be awesome!
