The September issue of Columbus Parent starts hitting the streets today and there's a special treat in there for you!Beginning with this issue, Columbus Parent is partnering with the Dispatch's Reader Rewards program to offer an Exclusive Columbus Parent Contest each month!

Columbus Parent readers who join Reader Rewards can access this exclusive contest everymonth at Dispatch.com/ParentContest.Register at Dispatch.com/Register then return to Dispatch.com/ParentContest each month to log in, answer trivia questions, enter bonus codes and win points toward prizes!

This month, you'll be accruing points to win Prestige Dining Club memberships, which will give you one FREE breakfast, lunch or dinner entree with the purchase of a second at more than 100 area restaurants. Each membership is worth $69.95 and we have 100 of them to give away!

Every Monday on the Reader Rewards site, starting Sept. 10, there will be a trivia question related to magazine content. And each month, you can find a Bonus Code somewhere in the magazine that you can enter in the Reader Rewards contest for more points (hint: have you read our classified ads lately?).

And speaking of Sept. 10, that's also the date when you'll be able to start submitting entries for this year's Win the Cover contest! It was, without a doubt, our most popular contest last year and we're happy to bring it back!

This year, we'll accept one photo entry per child (no larger than 2 MB in size) via our website, ColumbusParent.com. The photos submitted do not have to be taken by a professional (and, frankly, we prefer if they aren't). Entries will be accepted from noon on Monday, Sept. 10 until noon on Monday, Sept. 24. Our staff will then select 20 finalists for the public to vote on from Oct. 1-22. The top five vote-getters will be announced on Oct. 24. The winner will be selected by Columbus Parent's professional staff and photographed to appear on our December cover.

Stay tuned to our website, ColumbusParent.com, and our Facebook page (Columbus Parent Magazine) for more information!
