High School Art Contest

Calling all high school students in Puna!

Share your creative talents and help our community recover from the 2018 Kīlauea eruption. 

All students attending high schools in Puna are invited to enter one artwork with a short explanation answering the question:

"What does it mean to be Puna and Hawai‘i Island Strong?"

Top three entries will be awarded Individual Development Accounts (IDA) in amounts of $500, $750 or $1,000. An IDA is a savings account that can be used for education, workforce training, certifications or entrepreneurship opportunities. These are matched savings accounts and can help students save for their future development! 

All entries have a chance to be featured on Recovery materials.
