Star-Bulletin staff

University of Hawaii teams have placed first and third in the national Disney Imagi-Nations competition.

Stephen Crowell and Rienhardt Krekow, both candidates for a master of fine arts degree, took first place in creating an interactive theme park, resort and hotel.

Their creation -- "Origins" -- is supposed to fill in the missing pages of Marco Polo's journals.

In third place were architectural students Joon Ho Chai, Margaret Innes, Jenisse Miyamoto and Sochet Vitou Tang for "Shizu's Journey."

Crowell, technical director at the Polynesian Cultural Center, and Krekow, music professor at BYU-Hawaii, each received a $2,000 scholarship. The third-place team received $1,000 scholarships.

UH design students have placed in the finals seven times in the past eight years they have competed in the Disney competition.
