KIALOA Announces Student Scholarship Winners
KIALOA Paddles has just awarded an outrigger paddle to the 10 best student entries in the Sixth annual Live Like You Paddle Student Scholarship.
By: Search Consulting Services
This is a scholarship with an attitude - because it doesn't matter how good you are in school. We didn't grade the projects on spelling or grammar, and we did not judge artistic ability. These students did the best job of showing us how much they love paddling and that they understood how important it is to the Hawaiian values of Laulima (cooperation)
The scholarship committee at KIALOA Paddles had a really hard time picking the 10 best from all the great participants we had. The projects varied from videos, collages, poems and essays, just to name a few. The kids were very creative and we wished we could have given every one an award. However, kids can enter every year until they are 19 or out of school and we encourage everyone to keep trying.
Visit KIALOA's website, http://www.KIALOA.com, to learn how to enter for 2010 scholarship and to see a sample of each of the 10 winner's projects.
Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage teachers, coaches and parents to make sure that students are aware of our scholarship, since many qualified students may not know about this opportunity.
