2022 – 2023 Winners

Congratulations to all the talented winners and finalists of the 2023 Localicious® Hawaii Art and Video Contest. We are excited to announce the first place winners: Stella Rich, a second-grade student at Voyager Public Charter School, and Lilyanne Florendo, an eighth-grade student at Kaimuki Middle School. Stella’s beautiful artwork, titled “The Islands Give Me What I Need,” portrayed a calabash bowl filled with fresh fish and locally sourced produce. And, in Lilyanne’s impactful public service announcement, “Growing Local,” she effectively conveys the importance of eating fresh and supporting local farms.
