2016 EDDIE AIKAU ESSAY CONTEST
Once again, thanks to the generous grant award from the Laurence H. Dorcy Hawaiian Foundation, we have been able to offer this year's essay contest to Hawaii students. We are currently in the process of notifying all of the student winners and their schools of the outcome of this event and will be posting that information in the coming month for everyone to see.
The judging for the contest was held on October 1st, without the support of our volunteer judges we would not be able to achieve our essay goals and determination of winners from the over 400 essays we received this year.
We are pleased to announce the 22 student winners from this year's essay contest. For a list of this year's winner, CLICK HERE
