Nominations sought for
stellar anti-drug efforts
Nominations are due by Saturday for unsung heroes in Hawaii who are doing outstanding work to help make Hawaii a healthy, drug-free state.
The 2004 Ola Pono Awards will be presented at a special luncheon in February. Winners will receive a koa-framed Ola Pono Award and $1,000 each to be donated to a charity of choice.
Nominees may be a volunteer, educator, youth, parent, business, civic club or church organization -- any group or person helping to prevent substance abuse and violence in Hawaii through awareness, education or action.
A nomination form must be filled out with a description in two pages or less about what the nominee did to prevent substance abuse and violence and how the community improved as a result.
To request a nomination form, call Drug-Free Hawaii at (800) 545-1946 or visit HMSA's Web site at www.HMSA.com.
