"What Hawaii Means to Me"

On Monday, January 16th, Governor Ariyoshi in a ceremony in his office, presented awards to the statewide first prize winner in the League-sponsored poster contest, "What Hawaii's Coastal Zone Means to Me". Two winners from Honolulu and one from Hilo received round-trip air flights to Maui or Molokai and two days for two in a resort hotel. Over seventy prizes were given to student artists from about 1000 posters submitted from 75 schools throughout the State.

The purpose of the contest which was funded by a grant from the Federal Office of Coastal Zone Management was to increase public awareness of coastal zone issues. It was felt that such a contest would reach the largest number of previously uninvolved citizens in a way which would attract attention over a period of time. Winning posters are being included in an exhibit designed and built by Ken Shutt. The exhibit is being turned over to the Department of Planning and Economic Development which will manage its circulation around the state as part of their coastal zone planning program

The project wouldn't have been nearly such a success without the help and support of dozens of people throughout the state including Sea Grant Marine Program, DPED, CZM liaison persons, the DOE, and numerous leaguers on all islands.
