Whether it’s bone chilling or just a bit nippy, winter in Michigan sure can be cold. But luckily, Zevesh, 3, of Ann Arbor helped Metro Parent warm things up with his heart-warming cover shoot!
Bubbling with personality (and those bright brown eyes!), little Zevi (as his mom calls him) wore a cozy cap and snow-ready sweater to happily chow away on some delicious soup – the cover story for the January 2015 issue of Metro Parent. It focused on three delicious soup recipes that are sure to combat the cold weather – coupled with a few yummy extras, from muffins to hot chocolate. And while his final photo wound up cuter than a button, the behind-the-scenes footage is possibly even more precious as this tyke chats about food, dogs, thunderstorms and more:
For a second year, Metro Parent teamed up with MESP (that’s the Michigan Education Savings Plan) to host our CoverKids contest – and invest in local kids’ futures. Think of MESP as a 401(k), only for your child’s college, vs. your retirement. The money you put in it is tax-free, thanks to its federal “529” status. You can start one up with just $25, and contribute as little as $15 per pay period. There’s no limit to how much you add annually, though the max account balance is $235,000. Your kid can ultimately use the cash for tuition, room and board, and other college costs.
Be sure to meet all of our CoverKids winners for 2014, who were announced in the June 2014 issue and will be appearing on our magazine covers until early 2015.
Interested in your kid being on the cover of Metro Parent magazine? Keep checking the Metro Parent CoverKids page. We’ll be looking for cute kids for our 2015-16 covers around spring of 2015. Natural self-confidence, poise and personality are what it takes. You never know: Your kid might wind up in the spotlight, too.
