Congratulations to Fitchburg's Lyanny Pinales, who is the winner of Bay State Parent magazine's inaugural Cover Model Search. She graces the cover of our April issue, which went to the printers today.
Finalists for the magazine’s 2006 Cover Model Search showed off their smiles and personality at a photo shoot in late February, featuring stylish, spring clothing provided by Talbots Kids, headquartered in Hingham. (http://www.talbotskids.com/ -- a special shout out to the Natick store for styling the finalists.)
In our first cover model search, the magazine's judges selected two finalists in each of five, age categories (6-23 months, 24-47 months, 4-7 years, 8-10 years, and 11-13 years). Those finalists were announced in the January 2007 issue. (http://www.baystateparent.com/news/2007/0101/Articles/008.html)
After the February fashion shoot, the judges narrowed the 10 finalists to three individuals, who could possibly be the face of our April cover. Those three were (alphabetically): Jackie Cremin, Lyanny Pinales, and Micaiah Williamson.
Congrats to all 10 finalists!
Look for rules and entry forms for our 2nd Annual Cover Model Search to be announced soon.
