Detention camp
book wins Nene

Star-Bulletin staff

The children of Hawaii voted Louis Sachar winner of the 2001 Nene Award for his latest book, "Holes."

"Holes" is the story of a young boy wrongly accused of stealing who is sent to a detention camp for troubled youths. At the camp the boys must dig a 5-by-5-foot hole to "build character."

The award is presented annually to the favorite book voted by Hawaii's children in grades 4 through 6.

More than 2,400 children voted for the award at 95 school and public libraries.

Winners of the 2001 statewide children's essay and poster contests were also announced Friday by state Librarian Virginia Lowell.

Essay winners were Lauren Chai, grade 4, Lunalilo Elementary School; Suzanne Hodges, grade 5, Hickam Elementary School; and Colleen Farrell, grade 6, Our Lady of Perpetual Help School. A total of 102 essays were submitted for the contest.

Essay contestants were asked to finish the phrase "If I met J.K. Rowling, I would tell her ..."

Poster winners were Bailey Onaga, grade 4, Waihee Elementary School; Carlee Kim, grade 5, Maryknoll Grade School; and Carson T. Chun, grade 6, Maryknoll Grade School.

A total of 186 posters were submitted.

Winners received $10 bookstore gift certificates.

The Nene Award is sponsored by the Hawaii Library Foundation, Hawaii Library Association's Children and Youth Section, Hawaii Association of School Librarians and Permabound Books.

The award is supported by the Department of Education, State Public Library System and independent schools.
