Ali Festival Youth Poetry and Art Festival

The Muhammad Ali Center is seeking student artists to join us in celebrating the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali for our annual ALI Week Festival. The Ali Center is calling students from grades K-12 to channel their inner Ali by submitting poetry or an art piece based on specific Ali-related themes. We will select one winner from grades elementary, middle, and high, who will receive a unique prize.
