Announcing the 2019 Cover Kids Grand-Prize Winners! You'll see these cuties on our upcoming covers! By NYMetroParents Staff August 20, 2019 Want community news sent to you? Subscribe It’s official: You, dear readers, have cute kids! We knew picking finalists wasn’t going to be easy. In fact, it wasn’t easy times 1,000—that’s how many children were entered. Well, 1,006 to be exact. Once our editors were done exclaiming, “I love her hair!” “Look at his outfit!” and “Kids wearing glasses are adorable,” we poured over the entries and narrowed it down to nine cuties, plus our Fan Favorite. Those 10 kids were then invited to a photo shoot at Sarah Merians Photography & Video Company in Manhattan. And, boy, did they deliver! All the kids rocked the shoot decked out in clothes from Macy’s Backstage. The really difficult choice was choosing the two grand-prize winners. We powered through, though, and Jasper from Manhattan and Jordan from Nassau County are the grand-prize winners! Jasper and his family will celebrate the win with a two-night stay, plus two Paw Passes, at Great Wolf Lodge in Scotrun, PA, and Jordan will get next-level modeling advice with a scholarship to and photo shoot at Barbizon Modeling and Acting Studio. Nyla, our Fan Favorite from Brooklyn, also received a two-night stay at and two Paw Passes to Great Wolf Lodge. Congrats to everyone—and keep an eye out to see these beautiful faces on our future covers! Want to be among the first to know when our 2020 contest is live?
