The start of a new school year comes with many familiar items: fresh pencils, new teachers, backpacks, binders and new friends. For four teenagers at EAH Housing properties in Honolulu, the excitement of September came with much more than the familiar items. Kukui Gardens resident Jenny Liu recieved a competitve $1,000 scholarship based on her G.P.A., extracurricular activities, and community service. And Vivian Lee, Jodie Miu, and Anna Wen, all residents of Kukui Tower, were honored with awards and scholarships for their participation in the annual “Drug Free Kids” Calendar Contest.
For this year’s calendar contest, contestants submitted drawings based on the theme “Become a superstar, I can do anything I believe.” Check out the award winning posters below: (L to R, drawings by Anna Wen, Jodie Miu, Vivan Lee)
