My Abilities Are Super 2020 Cover Kid Search

Hudson Valley Parent is looking for kids with special needs, ages 2-16 years old, to appear on their magazine covers in 2020-2021. Pre-register on the Hudson Valley Parent website to reserve your free time slot on March 14th between 11:30 AM to 2 PM. Once your child’s time slot is confirmed, visit the Hudson Valley Parent booth in the hallway next to DSW (towards Regal) on March 14, 2020. Each registered child receives a free professional photo session with cover kid photographers, including Mike Bloom, and will have a free “mock cover” emailed to their parent 4-6 weeks after the event.

On March 23rd, photos will be posted on hvparent.com and voting will be open until March 29. Friends and family will vote on the top 5 winners to be featured in a photo spread and HV Parent’s panel of judges will choose one winner.  For additional details, visit the HV Parent website.
