Submit your school community program to the E Ola Pono Campaign
DOING GOOD? CONSIDER JOINING THE E OLA CAMPAIGN BY MAY 15TH
Are you part of a group who has done a project or activity to improve your school or community this school year? If so, consider joining the E Ola Pono Campaign by May 15th so your efforts can be acknowledged and your group becomes eligible for a monetary award.
The E Ola Pono Campaign is in its 7th year of encouraging student led initiatives in grades K-12 to proactively work to eliminate bullying and promote the concept of living pono, defined as acting with respect toward everyone and everything.
Campaign sponsors ask groups to submit documentation and a brief reflection about their activity by the mid-May deadline. Judges will then select exemplary E Ola Pono Campaigns in elementary, middle/intermediate, and high school divisions. Awards range from $250.00 to $1000.00.
This project is sponsored by UH Manoa’s Center on Disability Studies, Growing Pono Schools Project, a federally funded education initiative. A culture and place based character education curriculum geared for Hawaii’s 4th-12 grade students is also available at this Web site, along with other video and internet resources to help youth learn about living pono.
