This year’s theme is strengthening a sense of Belonging. In 2019, our theme was responsibility. It is taken from Na Hopena A’o or “HĀ” which is a statewide initiative adopted by the Hawaii Department of Education in 2015. Rooted in Hawaiian values, HĀ is a holistic learning process that reflects the uniqueness of Hawaii. It aspires to include everyone in our community to develop competencies that strengthen a sense of Belonging, responsibility, excellence, aloha, total-wellbeing and Hawaii (“BREATH”) in ourselves, students and others. He pili wehena ‘ole - (A relationship that cannot be undone)”
This year's participating organizations can focus their booths on engaging activities to educate on the Hawaiian value of belonging to ‘aina (land), moana (ocean), lahui (community), ‘ohana (family) and ‘o wau (myself).
