11th Annual International Ukulele Contest 2022 ONLINE

While we plan to hold 2022 Ukulele Picnic in Hawaii in September, we are happy to announce that 11th International Ukulele Contest will be held online again.

During this long-lasting pandemic, I am sure a lot of people are experiencing some sort of stress, and it could be possible that children are feeling that stress more than adults are. Therefore, it is my wish to let ukulele heal your souls, as well as give you new opportunities in life. 

To our keiki:  I believe you can create your own dreams and goals, by participating in a contest like this. You also get a chance to work hard, trying your best to achieve what you want. I understand that it’s hard to be evaluated or judged by others sometimes. It requires a lot of courage in yourself. But, I really think such courage is what we all need to start something new. It will open up opportunities, which will lead to a positive view of life. Please use this contest entry period as meaningful time. 

To our adult participants: This is your chance to share your ukulele talent all over the world, by rediscovering the ukulele’s wonderful and fun nature with many other ukulele enthusiasts. 

I am looking forward to receiving many entries!
