Hawaii History Day State Fair Award

Hawaii History Day

One Child Too Many: A Frontier in China's Population presented by 10th graders Ava Ignacio and Dylan Matsui (teacher Sean Wagner) from Waiakea High School won ACUW's award for Hawai'i History Day on April 15, 2023.  Even more exciting news is that they placed first and are national qualifiers in the senior performance category.  Consistent with ACUW's mission, this award for an outstanding project in Chinese or Chinese-American history has been sponsored for more than 16 years and initiated by Lois Mui, the daughter of one of the founders of our association.
