KHS art contest for animal aikane

PUHI— On May 22 the classroom at the Kaua‘i Humane Society was filled with amazing artists: the student winners of the annual Humane Society art contest.

King Kaumuali‘i Elementary was the most represented school with six winners.

The students had about two months to design and submit their representations of the contest theme, “Animal Aikane,” or animal friends.  

One student submitted a beautiful representation of the Kaua‘i Humane Society logo, while others showed underwater scenes of our friends in the ocean. All of the winning drawings will be put into an art exhibit at the Kaua‘i Humane Society starting June 20th and going throughout the summer. The public is welcome to come and see them.
