Deadline extended for ‘Imi Pono contest

The entry deadline for the 2021 ‘Imi Pono: The Greatest Challenge media contest for high school and intermediate students has been extended to Friday.

The contest calls for youths to create a public awareness campaign around the theme: “The Four Ws — Wear Your Mask, Wash Your Hands, Watch Your Distance and Worldwide Vaccination.”

There are three categories – photography, art and video — with first, second and third place winners in high school and intermediate divisions. The entries should creatively capture the attention of the public. Multiple entries may be submitted.

With the new entry deadline, finalists now will be announced at 5 p.m., Sept. 30.

There will be monetary and other prizes and opportunities for winning entries to be shown and displayed throughout the county. Details will be announced soon.
