The Cover Kid Event

The Cover Kid Event is the annual event where children are selected from the community who, for the next twelve months, will appear on the cover and/or within the pages of Baton Rouge Parents Magazine. It is not a beauty contest, a talent show or a model casting. We believe that Cover Kids come in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and abilities. Children with special needs are encouraged to participate, and accommodations will be in place.

What should my child wear to The Cover Kid Event?

Anything they want! They don't have to dress up in any special attire, and it is best for children to wear clothing in which they feel comfortable. What we are really looking for is everyday kids who have that special sparkle.

What do Cover Kids do?

Cover Kids will appear on the cover and/or within the pages of Baton Rouge Parents Magazine. Cover Kids can be featured in content such as in advertisements, special promotions, fashion layouts, or featured articles throughout the printed magazines.

Do you have any tips for my child?

Yes–allow your children to be themselves! We strive to make the children very comfortable with a relaxed conversation and environment.

Who can be Cover Kids?

All children between the ages of 2 and 17 years are eligible regardless of shape, size, ethnicity, or abilities.
