Cover kids will either appear on the cover; in the pages of the magazine such as in advertisements, special promotions, fashion layouts and in featured articles; or both, the magazine’s website says. All cover kids will become ambassadors for the magazine, with opportunities to attend various events throughout the year, participate in fashion shows and volunteer in the community, the website says.
