The deadline has passed to enter our Kid’s Room Contest, but the best is yet to come. Here's what happens next: A panel of experts will select the finalists, and they’ll be revealed in Local Living on Oct. 11 (but available to view online Monday). Then, readers have until Oct. 15 to vote online for their favorite room. Both the judges’ and readers’ favorites will be announced in the newspaper Oct. 18.
