Does your child have what it takes to be on the next Kids Count cover?

Update:  We’ve received a few awesome photo submissions for the cover (see our mock-up at right) but there is still room on our next Kids Count Cover for a few more! Get your photos in by Friday, November 2 Tuesday, November 6 for a chance to see them on our 2013 Kids Count Report.

*Note: We’ve extended the deadline until Tuesday, November 6 (Election Day).  So on Tuesday, first go vote and then send us your photos!

Next year we will release the 20th edition of the Kids Count in Nebraska Report and we need your help to celebrate the milestone.

The Kids Count in Nebraska Report has always featured photos of Nebraska’s kids – either taken by volunteer photographers or our staff as we visit child-serving sites across the state.

But to make our 20th Kids Count extra special, we want to feature YOUR photos!


We want kids of all ages – from infants to teens and everything in between.

We want photos of kids being kids – running, playing, laughing, or just hanging out – so no school or senior pictures, please.

We want Nebraska kids.  Your grandkids might be the cutest kids ever, but if they live in Colorado, we can’t use their photos. (Sorry!)


Think the kids in your life have what it takes to be a Kids Count cover kid?  Submit your photos today!
