Kunimura wins $500 in essay contest
A Waiakea High School junior is among six recipients of a $500 cash award for an essay contest on meaningful volunteering.

The awards were presented by Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald, Associate Justices Simeon Acoba and Daniel Foley and Hawaii State Bar Association President Craig Wagnild.
