Local children's musician honored


Hays musician Randy Sauer recently was honored for his work in children's music.

Sauer's DVD, "Go Crazy," was given a 2013 Preferred Choice Award from Creative Child Magazine, with judges including educators, teachers and other professionals. The DVD was released in August and will be listed in the November-December edition of the magazine.

In addition, a song from the DVD, "Dig Into Reading," earned third-place at the children's category of the Dallas Songwriter Association songwriting contest, a 26-year-old international contest.

Judge Roy Elkins called Sauer's entry "one of the best children's song I have ever heard."
