Kids VT Instagram Takeover 

Thanks for your interest in taking over the @kids_vt Instagram. Please read the content below and fill out the form to submit your application.

Kids VT is Vermont's only parenting magazine, a reliable resource for family-friendly events, activities, camps and classes since 1994. Find tips on health, fitness, food, shopping, books, crafts and more. Our free, monthly magazine is available at more than 600 locations in northern and central Vermont.

We hope to use the Instagram takeover program to highlight the experiences of different Vermont families and showcase things to do in our state. We want to see the experience of living in Vermont through your eyes, whether you’re hiking, berry picking, visiting a museum or grabbing a bite to eat. Our goal is to show our audience why it’s so great to raise a family here.

Criteria:

  • You will have access to the Instagram for one full weekend (Friday-Sunday) and can post to both the story and the feed during that three-day period.
  • Write a post that introduces who you are to our followers and the purpose of your takeover – what things does your family have planned for the weekend?
  • Do not “spam the feed” – try to limit your posts to one or two photos a day, max.
  • This isn’t about tourism or promoting Kids VT, it’s about sharing the experience of raising a family in Vermont with our followers, so do not feel the need to promote us or any specific organization with your posts.
  • Do not use this as an opportunity to promote your personal business. Send us a short bio that we can use to promote your Instagram account to our followers.
  • Post on your personal Instagram account to let your followers know that you’re doing the takeover.
Recommendations:
  • No more than two posts a day, no less than two to three posts through the weekend.
  • Take advantage of the Instagram story for your extra photos or videos instead of adding them to the feed. Please use the story as much as possible.
  • Have interesting stories to share – plan to take over the Instagram on a weekend where you have fun things planned and will be spending quality time with your kids.
  • If people comment or direct message you, you are welcome to respond.
  • You’re welcome to post about activities that we’ve written about in our Daytripper or in our publications, but that isn’t required – they’re only a source for ideas.

Code of Conduct:

Do not share anything you would not be comfortable discussing with a child. Avoid sensitive discussions surrounding politics, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation. Don’t interact with a poster or commenter who makes you feel uncomfortable. Contact us about the best way to respond to that person. Our Instagram account is meant to be accessible for all ages.

Interested? Great, fill out this form.
