The prizes for this year's Canadian Music Class Challenge include thousands of dollars in gift certificates for instruments or any other audio products from Long & McQuade. 

Here is a full list of our prizes:

  • Eight first-place prizes of $3,000 in gift certificates will go to the top eight classes in each age category, as chosen by our judges, plus a gold-record plaque for the classroom or trophy case.
  • The second- and third-place winners in each age category will also receive a gold-record plaque.
  • $1,000 in new musical instruments will be awarded for the best performance of "Strawberry Moon (Ode'min Giizis)" by Tara Williamson in Anishinaabemowin, the language of the Anishinaabe nation, as chosen by our judges. (If your music class or classes performs 'Strawberry Moon / Ode'min Giizis' by Tara Williamson, you should enter in the age-appropriate category 1-8. However, all submissions of this song will also qualify for this prize.)
  • $1,000 in new musical instruments will be awarded to the best music class from a community program, outside of a regular school curriculum, as chosen by our judges.
