NOLA Media Group is proud to announce 300 for 300, our initiative to celebrate New Orleans’ Tricentennial in 2018. Beginning in January 2017, The Times-Picayune and NOLA.com will recognize the 300 people and moments that inspire and connect us. Culled from reader nominations, the 300 most significant people and moments in New Orleans history will be revealed beginning in January of 2017. This two-year editorial project will continue throughout 2018. 300 for 300 will culminate in a special event gala in December 2018, to which all partners will be invited and celebrated.
