Visionary art sought
for book, exhibit

Fifty students in grades 9-12 could have their artwork displayed at the Honolulu Academy of Arts in December.

"Visualizing Hawaii's New Millennium," a statewide contest, is being sponsored by Ke Ala Hoku and focuses on how local youth are or plan to make Hawaii a better place.

Professional judges will choose which artworks will be displayed based on how they answer one of these questions: "How will you know when Hawaii has reached The Children's Vision?" or "What can you do to help Hawaii reach The Children's Vision?"

Entries need to be dropped off at designated locations between March 12 and April 15. Winning artwork(s) will also be used in Ke Ala Hoku's Millennium Youth Action Indicator Book.

For information, call 539-3561.
