Duluth girl featured in national magazine

Posted: Updated:
DULUTH, Ga. -

A metro Atlanta girl is on the cover of a national magazine.

Gracie Kirschner, 11, was chosen to be on the cover of Discovery Girls because she's a role model for other girls her age.

Kirschner has a subscription and was reading the magazine last Spring when she saw an advertisement for a contest. The contest called for young leaders to apply. The magazine was looking for girls who volunteer, serve as role models in their communities, participate in extracurricular activities and who do well in school.

The winners of the contest received a trip to California, the opportunity to contribute content to the magazine and the chance to be photographed for the magazine.

More than 800 girls applied and Kirschner was one of 36 chosen.

The issue is out on stands now and you can find it in major book stores.
