PFH School Mural Contest: Vote for your favorite entries!

April 01, 2021

Students from across Hawaiʻi have entered the 2021 Plastic Free Hawaiʻi School Mural Contest! This year, students and school groups grades K-12 incorporated marine debris, plastic bottle caps, or any other single-use plastic items collected from cleanups or recycling drives and created murals to inspire and evoke issues surrounding plastic pollution around the theme of UNITY. Seven submissions were entered from Hahaʻione Elementary, Hawaiʻi School for the Deaf & Blind, Ilima Intermediate, Kahaluʻu Elementary, Island Pacific Academy, Mililani High, and St. Andrew's Schools, and now we need your help! Join us on Earth Day, Thursday April 22, Friday April 23 and Saturday April 24 at the Kōkua General Store to view the murals in person and help us choose the winner! The Plastic Free Hawaiʻi School Mural Art Show will be open from 1:00pm-5:00pm. If you can not make it to the Plastic Free Hawaiʻi Art Show, help us choose a winner using this form. The grand prize winner will receive a water refill station for their school and a virtual presentation from Upcycle Hawaiʻi for their class. Runners-up will receive gifts from Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation and Upcycle Hawaiʻi for their participation. Stay tuned for the announcement of this year’s winners!
