NOJC  is  a  tax-exempt  nonprofit  organization  created  in  1994  by  the  Louisiana  Music  Commission  to  develop  innovative  jazz  programs  for  young  audiences  and  communities  throughout  the  region  and  the  world.    To  fulfill  its  mission,  NOJC  conducts  several  activities  throughout  the  year  to  introduce  young  audiences  to  America’s  original  indigenous  art  form  –jazz.    It  is  NOJC’s  firm  belief  that  the  contest  plays  a  significant  role  in  demonstrating  the  importance  of  including  creative  arts  in  the  educational  curriculum  of  students.
