CoverKids Winners 2016

Each year, Metro Parent teams up with Michigan Education Savings Plan (MESP) to select its CoverKids – those adorable faces you see on the cover of Metro Parent magazine every month. We put the call out for Michigan parents to submit photos of their little ones for the search and a team of local photographers help our designers choose the winners – plus one grand prize winner, who is awarded $2,529  in a colleges savings account from MESP.

  • So ecstatic for all the cover kid winners. They are such beautiful kids. But bummed that none of the finalist are special needs. With the introduction of the new article that specifically outlines things for special needs family, I was certain that you would take my suggestion to show case one of these beautiful children. I for one would love to look at a magazine cover that has a kid more like mine on it.

  • I know! My son has Down Syndrome …He has done 1 commercial for BCBS website…So darn cute so I submitted him. I do see here that there are all different ethnic backgrounds so that’s a plus…I guess better luck next year!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, as I completely agree,}
