The Department of Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with the Department of Education, is conducting the “Sew a Lei For Memorial Day” Poster Contest in classrooms throughout Hawaii.

All students in Grades K-12 are encouraged to submit entries depicting lei-making activities or ceremonial actions at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific to help prepare for this year's Memorial Day Observance. The deadline for submitting posters is March 22.

First, second and third place winners will be chosen in three categories: Grades K-4, 5-8 and 9-12. All winners will receive a round-trip air travel for two to a neighbor island courtesy of Aloha Airlines. The first place entries from each category will be used to create Memorial Day posters that will be distributed statewide.
For more information call the Department of Parks and Recreation at 523-4183.
