2018 Localicious Hawaii Art & Poetry Contest


Oct 2, 2017 to Nov 6, 2017
12:00 AM until 11:45 PM


Creative keiki are welcomed to participate in the fourth annual Localicious Hawaiʻi Art and Poetry Contest presented by Hawaiʻi Gas. The statewide competition, hosted by the Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation, kicks off on Monday, Oct. 2 and encourages K-8 students to learn more about Hawaiʻi-grown ingredients. This year’s theme follows “My Favorite Dish Created with Locally Grown and Raised Crop,” and stems off of the yearlong Localicious Hawaiʻi campaign goal to raise awareness about local agriculture in our state.

Student artists have the option to submit an original poem or an elaborate illustration to be entered for a chance to win a mall shopping spree (up to $100) and an exclusive class party featuring one of Hawaiʻi’s popular celebrity chefs. Judging categories include: Overall Winner for Poetry, Overall Winner for Artwork, Winner for Grades K-2, Winner for Grades 3-5 and Winner for Grades 6-8. Entries will be accepted until Thursday, Nov. 9 and champions will be announced by Jan. 1, 2018. At the conclusion of the contest, winning pieces will also be showcased along the halls of the historic Honolulu Hale for public viewing.
