CoverKids Winners 2016

These southeast Michigan kids will be featured on the cover of Metro Parent magazine in 2016-17. Plus, meet our CoverKids grand prize winner!

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.

Wondering who the 2016 winners are? Take a peek below and meet the lucky local kids – including our grand prize winner Lakshya!
