PRLog - Apr. 25, 2012 - BEND, Ore. -- KIALOA Paddles’ annual scholarship is an opportunity for student paddlers to earn a KIALOA paddle.  To be considered for the scholarship, students - 18 years old and under, submit a project such as an essay, art, poem, or digital presentation expressing how outrigger paddling has taught them Hawaiian values.  The top entries will receive a free KIALOA outrigger paddle.

Hawaiian Values
Outrigger paddling is more than a sport;  it is an integral part of the Hawaiian culture.   The Live Like You Paddle Student Scholarship celebrates and preserves the importance of Hawaiian values in outrigger canoeing.  Values like Po’okela (excellence), Laulima (teamwork), Malama (stewardship), Kuleana (responsibility), Kokua (helping), Ohana (family), or Ha’aha’a (humility) are part of learning how to paddle in a canoe… and to live life.

Past Winners
In the past, KIALOA has received videos, slide shows, essays, art projects, poems, and other ingenious projects. Although these are very different, what they have in common is that they imaginatively express how paddling has helped teach Hawaiian values.

Scholarship Entries are Due May 31st 2012
Please visit http://www.kialoa.com/talk-story/student-scholarship.html for the complete set of rules and the application.  Projects may be submitted by email or shipped to KIALOA Paddles at 747 SE Business Way, Bend, OR 97702
