KTA announces Design-A-Bag artwork contest winners
KTA Super Stores has announced the winners of its recent Design-A-Bag artwork contest, which was held in conjunction with its annual Kokua i Na Kula program.
Grand-prize winners include Alon Halsted, E.B. deSilva Elementary, grade 2; Romilly Benedict, Waimea Middle Public Conversion Charter School, grade 8; and Grayson Mento, Hilo High School, grade 12.
Each winning student received a field trip for his or her class, 500 extra Kokua i Na Kula points for their school, and inclusion of their winning piece of artwork on a reusable bag to be sold in the future at KTA Superstores.
Big Island students in grades K-12 were asked to create an image inspired by this year’s theme, “What Do You Value?” More than 1,300 pieces of artwork were submitted and judged based on originality and creativity, artistic technique, overall impression and appropriateness to theme.
Now in its 19th year, Kokua i Na Kula provides schools the opportunity to earn their share of $100,000 for school beautification projects, classroom enhancements, equipment and extracurricular activities.
KTA shoppers earlier this year accumulated points for Big Island schools by purchasing designated products.
