Description: Does your child have the qualities of Parents Kid of the Year? Enter eligible photos of your child portraying the characteristics of a Parents Magazine kid for a chance to win $7000 or 52 weekly chances to win $250. The weekly winners are determined by community vote so tell all your family and friends. The editorially-chosen winner will be selected from all entries by qualified judges. Reader's Choice weekly winners will have no bearing on the selection of the editorial-chosen winner. All entries, regardless if they are a Reader's Choice weekly winner or not, will have equal chance to be selected as the editorial-chosen winner.
Additional Info: This contest is sponsored by Meredith Corporation, publisher of Parents magazine and other lifestyle magazines.
Personal note: Parents conducts many unique photo contests throughout the year - more than I ever realized and many are multi-week contests, some with weekly prizes leading up to final grand prizes. Having discovered this recently, I will begin checking the site more often to compile the contest details and post the listings before the weekly portion of the contests begin.
