Special to Hawaii 24/7 by Margaret Masunaga
Konawaena Elementary School in Kealakekua honored the winners of the West Hawaii Bar Association poster contest winners this week.
The contest was part of the Kona Law Week celebration, “Law in the 21st Century: Enduring Traditions, Emerging Challenges,” in May with the American Bar Association, Hawaii State Bar Association, Judiciary of the State of Hawaii, and the West Hawaii Bar Association.
The kindergarten, second grade and third grade winners posed for photographs with poster contest coordinator and Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Carol Kitaoka, and Margaret Masunaga, Deputy Planning Director.
Mayor Billy Kenoi judged the winners of the Kealakehe Elementary School poster contest and signed all the posters for the winners.
The posters this year included such themes as stop Furlough Fridays, don’t talk on your cell phone while driving, countries around the world need to get along otherwise they will all fall down (with bowling pins), promoting composting, prevent oil spills, no littering, and quit smoking.
