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.
