Kaua‘i High School Key Club came home with two top awards from the state convention on Maui.
Charlene Navarro, the club’s adviser, said the group repeated as winners in the scrapbooking competition, stepping up their win this year by having their project become eligible for the district competition.
“The students will be packing up their key rack and keychain assortment for shipment to Long Beach, Calif., where the district competition will take place,” Navarro said.
In that competition, the Kaua‘i High students will be pitted against other Key Clubs from the different states that make up the district.
But Navarro’s pride came in announcing the Kaua‘i club’s earning of top honors in the Outstanding Key Club, Large Club division.
The award reflects the character of the school’s club and to win it against other schools and clubs in the state is quite an honor, Navarro said.
Navarro said 13 students, two advisors and a Kiwanis club chaperone made the trip to the state convention held on Maui.
There are 75 students who make up the Kaua‘i High School Key Club, which operates under the auspices of the Kiwanis Club.
