Kids to Compete in Ukulele Contest

ukekidSilicon Valley may be the home to all things digital, but this weekend it will be treated to a dose of something altogether analog–the 1st Annual Ukes for Kids SF Bay Area Ukulele Contest in San Mateo, California.

Kids from all over the area will compete on Sunday, August 3 for a new KoAloha ukulele and a chance to perform on Pacific Vibes Radio. Ukulele magazine, which is one of the contest sponsors, will also be donating free to the 12 contest finalists, and will toss in a Ukulele magazine T-shirt to the winner.


The finalists have already been selected after performing in Berkeley, California, and have been divided into three categories: solo 13 years and younger, solo 14 years to 17 years, and vocal 17 years and younger.
