In the Spotlight: Becoming a Cover Kid


Every year, Baton Rouge Parents Magazine hosts The Cover Kid Event to find fresh faces to appear on the cover and within the pages of the magazine for the upcoming year. The Cover Kid Event is not a beauty contest or a talent show–it’s simply a great opportunity for kids to come together, be themselves, have some fun, and possibly become next year’s new faces for the magazine. This year’s family-friendly event will be held on Saturday, August 12 at Pennington Biomedical Research Center at 10 a.m. For those interested in learning more about what to expect, we have answered parents’ most frequently asked questions.

What makes a Cover Kid?
A Cover Kid is between the ages of 2 and 17 years old, and is a good role model for all children. We believe that children who shine come in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and abilities. We encourage all children to attend the event and join in the fun and the possibility of becoming a Baton Rouge Parents Magazine Cover Kid.
Cover Kids who are chosen will become ambassadors for the magazine as well as appear in the pages of our award-winning layouts. Cover Kids will have the opportunity to attend various events with us throughout the year, participate in fashion shows, and volunteer in our community.

How is a Cover Kid selected?
There’s no secret method to becoming selected as a Cover Kid. The best advice that can be given is to allow the child to be themselves. It’s not about choosing the right outfit or memorizing lines before meeting the judges–it’s about being a kid and having fun.

What happens at the event?
Once they are registered, each child will receive a time slot for when he or she will meet the judges. When the child’s time arrives, he will go up to the judges on his own and talk to one of the judges briefly.
After the interview, the child will know whether or not to return for callbacks. During callbacks, a total of 50 children will be chosen to become official Cover Kids.
