A total of six award-winners were selected from high schools across Hawaii for their outstanding aptitude and interest in information technology and computing, solid leadership ability, good academic history and plans for post-secondary education. The students will be honored at an award ceremony Tuesday at the University of Hawaii Queen Liliuokalani Center on Oahu.
