You can now earn some extra cash and be a part of a longstanding tradition at the Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo.

Every time a child born at the hospital, it plays Brahms' "Lullaby" to mark the occasion.

The Women & Children's Hospital, as it gets ready to move locations, wants you to be a part of the move.

It's now launching a "Lullaby Contest," and asking for your rendition of the famous piece. 

Entrants are asked to record and submit their lullaby to the hospital's website by September 15.

A panel of judges will then pick the top three contestants, who will get to perform their renditions of "Lullaby" for a live audience at the end of September.

The contest winner's version of "Lullaby" will be played at the hospital for each birth, and will receive a cash prize of $1,500.

Season tickets to Shea's will go to the runner-up, and the third place contestant can choose between season passes to Darien Lake and BPO concert tickets.

The hospital is slated to move to its new location in November.
