Message for Entrants of the 11th Annual International Ukulele Contest

Big MAHALO goes to all the contestants in our second online contest. We received 207 entry videos from 20 different countries, which marked almost twice the number of entries from last yearʼs contest. I am happy because I recognize that as a sign that so many more people found joy and happiness in the event, as did our staff members and judges.

All the entry videos captured the personality of the performers and their different cultural backgrounds, and I was able to get a vivid glimpse into each contestantʼs life even in such short videos. All of them, however, had one thing in common – everyone LOVEs ukulele.

Some say that entering this contest changed their perspective on life. They were able to find their own unique personalities by comparing to others, or to find inspiration in other contestantsʼ performances. Some might have been able to feel connected and share a sense of togetherness throughout the contest, because we are all into one thing – ukulele.

I especially wish that our youth contestants were able to feel something special through our event which benefited their inner spiritual growth. Also, I would like to send special appreciation for the young entrants from Shanghai for being part of our contest despite of a strict lockdown period due to Covid-19. Thank you so much!

May your ukulele bring you more happiness – Keep on Strumming!

Kazuyuki Sekiguchi
Chairman of Ukulele Foundation of Hawaii
