In this statewide assessment, the following Waiakea High School students earned awards and recognition: Yan Ying Huang and Keaohuana’oli Rivera-Leong, Team ASH (marketing plan for Alarm Hawaii), Competency Recognition, and Adam Onishi and Jennifer Taniguchi, second-place plaque and $300 cash prize.
