LIHUE — The Hawaii Access to Justice Commission and the Hawaii State Bar Association are sponsoring an essay contest for high school students entitled “How to Inspire Others to Volunteer.”
The contest is open to students in grades 10 to 12. The deadline for submissions is Sept. 22.
The contest is to recognize exceptional volunteerism by Hawaii students and to encourage them to share their experiences with others. One winning essay will be selected from a student on Kauai, Maui (including Lanai and Molokai), and the Big Island, and three from Oahu.
Each honored recipient will receive a $500 award. The winners will be recognized at a pro-bono celebration event to be held at the Hawaii Supreme Court Courtroom in Honolulu on Oct. 23.
