Write a Poem about Maui
What makes Maui Home to you? That is the question the Haiku Hoolaulea and Flower Festival is asking students on Maui to answer for their new poetry contest, “My Maui”. Now open for submissions until September 29, 2021. Public, private and homeschool students from grades K-12 are invited to submit poems. The insights that the Maui keiki have about their island home, what it means to them, and how they connect to it will bring a fresh outlook to this place we all call home.
There will be two categories to enter in, “rhymed poems” or “free verse”. Grade Divisions are as follows: Kindergarten-Grade 2, Grades 3-5, Grades 5-8, Grades 9-10, and Grades 11-12. Prizes from local vendors will be awarded to winners and runners up from each division. For more information about the contest, please call 808-385-3176 or visit haikumaui.org or haikuhoolaulea.org.

The 16th Annual Stand for Children Rally hosted by Maui Family Support Services will take place on Saturday, September 18, 2021, from 9a-noon, but it will NOT be a drive-through event as originally planned. Due to rising COVID-19 cases, the event has been changed to a delivery event. Families who register by Friday evening, September 17, 2021, will receive a visit from costumed characters on Saturday morning. Celebration bags with goodies, information about community resources, and activities for keiki will be delivered to each family’s home. Families can participate for FREE, but must pre-register using this registration form.
