SATCHMO "WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD"

ART & ESSAY/ POETRY CONTEST

The New Orleans Jazz Celebration’s Annual “What a Wonderful World” Art/Essay/Poetry contest honors the legacy of Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong through outstanding artistic work from students with the focus on the essence of the Jazz music in the Crescent City.

 

This contest is an opportunity for students in grades Kindergarten through High School to demonstrate their visual arts, oratorical, and written skills.
