Gershwin Prize

In commemoration of George and Ira Gershwin's dedication to American song and culture and the generous efforts of their families to preserve and perpetuate that heritage, the Library of Congress has named its "Gershwin Prize" for Popular Song after these two prolific artists. The medal that will be awarded annually to a person of similar stature in American popular music is adapted from the design of their Congressional Gold Medal.
