Finding all those cute kids to feature on Metro Parent’s 12 annual magazine covers is no small task. After lots and lots of careful deliberation, though, we came to our final decision – and we’re thrilled to unveil the CoverKids winners for 2019!

To find these adorable mugs, Metro Parent teamed up with the Michigan Education Savings Program (MESP) in our annual CoverKids Search (which is free and runs online January-March every year). As always, loads of Michigan parents and guardians submitted online entries of their children.

The grand prize winner also scored a $2,529 college savings plan. We also launched our new-in-2019 Delta Dental Smile Ambassador. And we got some help from you in picking our CoverKids Readers Choice winner.

So, without further ado … scroll on down and meet our 2019 CoverKids winners. Watch for them on the covers of Metro Parent magazine from June 2019 till May 2020!

  1. Thank You Metro Parent for all the work you do in our community. My daughter is a beautiful girl and would like to see her picture on or in the magazine and with this COVID Pandemic crisis it would really help other youth to build self confidence.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Tamika! We aren’t running CoverKids because of COVID but if you’re on Instagram, we are still pulling pictures that are tagged with #MPMoment to go inside the magazine.
