To honor those who dedicate their lives to children's music, we present:
The Magic Penny Award is a tribute to people in our community who have dedicated their lives to empowering children through music. Each year the Magic Penny Award program is a highlight of the CMN International Conference. The tribute program features songs written by or used by the recipient, informative appreciations of the recipient's work, and of course the presentation of the award itself.
The Pass It On! Scholars Award is given each Fall to a High School Senior, University or College student, selected by CMN’s Pass it on Project Reviewers as the candidate most likely, throughout their lifetime, to continue celebrating the positive power of music in the lives of children AND to recognize the importance of networking and sharing knowledge, music, ideas, and songs.
