Localicious Art & Poetry Contest

 The entry period for the 2020 Localicious Art & Poetry Contest is now closed. 

About

The Localicious Art and Poetry contest encourages keiki to think more consciously about where their food comes from, and to celebrate their favorite local foods. The contest is an extension of Localicious Hawai‘i, a statewide public awareness campaign throughout March that promotes restaurants that source locally grown, caught or raised products. All proceeds raised from the campaign benefit HAF’s K-12 ag education programs through the purchase of a Localicious dish. Since the beginning in 2014, Localicious has raised over $260,000 for ag education. In the 2018-19 school year, HAF served over 4,600 K-12 students at 104 public schools statewide.
