American Girl magazine is celebrating its 20th birthday this year. As someone who volunteers with young girls, I know how popular the American Girl brand is with tweens and young teens. That is why I am happy to share about the magazine’s national cover contest that is part of their yearlong celebration. Girls (ages 8 to 13) can enter to win an appearance on the cover of the 2013 “Best of American Girl” issue. Focused on friendship, a pair of friends will be chosen to be on the cover based on the story of their unique friendship. How sweet! You can find the full details and an entry form at AG Magazine Cover Contest.

I took a peek at the January/February issue of the American Girl magazine and I think that it is really great for young girls. In keeping with the “birthday” theme, it was filled with a bunch of party ideas and birthday stories from American Girl Readers. You can view a free sample of a past magazine at

The fun part is that a Mom in the City reader also has a chance to win an American Girl magazine prize. While I can’t get your child a magazine cover, American Girl has kindly agreed to gift two one-year subscriptions of American Girl magazine to one lucky reader. (One subscription can go to your daughter and the other to one of her best friends.) To enter to win, simply let me know what you like best about your daughter’s friendship with her best friend in the “Comments” section below.

For an extra (totally optional!) entry, you can sign up for my email or RSS feed updates. Just leave an additional comment sharing that you signed up. I will use to choose a winner next Tuesday, February 5th, at noon. Good luck!
