Metro Parent magazine celebrates kids with its annual CoverKids Search, which seeks a confident and charismatic child up to 12 years old to grace its cover and land a contract with a national talent agency. After registering online, star-struck small fries attempting a career in modeling, acting, or professional red-carpet standing can catch their big break by impressing the panel of Metro Parent staffers and premier talent scouts. Nonnegotiable appointment times will be allotted during the CoverKids Search 2011 event held Saturday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m and Sunday, June 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills. Enrolled attendees will receive a T-shirt, a coupon book to family-friendly hot spots, and access to talent workshops detailing the dos and don’ts of pursuing a modeling career, from building a portfolio to mastering smooth runway taxis.
