Is your child a born leader? Do they love to laugh, have a vivid imagination and love to learn? 
 
If so, your child might be the next CEO (For A Day) at cMoe.
 
You read that right! One child, between the ages of 9 and 12 years old, will be selected and announced as our new leader during the week of September 29 (cMoe's 12th Birthday)!
 
The "CEO For A Day" will make suggestions about its future and implement ideas only a child can imagine. The right candidate will love to laugh, will be no stranger to fun and discovery and will have big ideas for cMoe.
 
This opportunity will allow kids to demonstrate their passion, interests and excitement in an environment where they feel empowered and important. The new CEO will meet with museum supporters, conduct a meeting with museum staff, and invite their class for a field trip for some play time. These are just a few of the ways the kid CEO will gain a behind-the-scenes look at the business world.
