Heidi Klum will choose the Grand Prize winner from our favorite photos of your creative kids' costumes

Which kid in America has the most creative Halloween costume in the pumpkin patch? That's what we intend to find out with your photos and the help of celebrity judge Heidi Klum, who will select the Grand Prize winner.

The Grand Prize? Patch will whisk the winner to New York or Los Angeles for a three day, two night trip for two that includes a meet and greet with Heidi, plus a donation of $1031 to a local charity of the winner's choice. Nine runners up will also get a $1031 donation from Patch to a local charity of their choice.

Entering is easy. Just upload a photo of your kid, 12 years of age or younger, in his or her Halloween costume. Entries must be made by the parent or legal guardian of the child photographed. Photos should include your child's name, your name and your local charity of choice. That information can be added after you upload your photo. Simply click "Edit Photo," and fill out the caption field. .

Submissions must be received before 9 p.m. EST on Halloween night, Oct. 31.

Good luck and be sure to support Heidi Klum’s efforts to feed the hungry. Visit Trick or Treat for UNICEF! And find more of Heidi’s Halloween favorites at heidiklum.aol.com.

This is a costume I made for my daughter this year. We wanted to do Little Red Riding hood with a twist. We call it "Red's Revenge: Protecting Grandma's everywhere from the Big Bad Wolf". I made the dress. My daughter is eight years old.
