Young Artists of Hawaiʻi is an annual student art competition and exhibition that recognizes creative excellence among Hawaiʻi’s students in kindergarten through sixth grade. This exhibit is presented by the Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (SFCA) and the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority. The program provides opportunities for students to celebrate the diverse cultures of Hawaiʻi. The theme, “My Culture, My Family, and Me” is intended to inspire students to express how they feel, see or interpret their lives in the islands. A panel of distinguished judges select 96 works for exhibition from school submissions. The selected works are exhibited at the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum, and replicas of the works are exhibited in the Pā Kamaliʻi Courtyard at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center, welcoming thousands of visitors each year and building their understanding of Hawaiʻi’s cultures through the eyes of young people. Related events not only recognize the student artists, they also serve as a focal point for family gatherings, community pride and opportunities for local and state officials to experience the power of the arts. For more information about the program, contact SFCA Arts Program Specialist Project Manager Kamakani Konia.
