Free Public Screening of Top Student Video Stories at Local HIKI NŌ Festival

Top stories from the past season of HIKI NŌ, PBS Hawaii’s statewide student news network, will be shown at a free public outdoor screening on Saturday, August 29 at Island School as part of the 2015 HIKI NŌ Festival. All of the stories in the festival have been nominated for the 2015 HIKI NŌ Awards. Five of the 34 nominated schools are on Kauai.

“The HIKI NŌ Festival is a great way for young storytellers to show the state what they can do,” says HIKI NŌ Executive Producer Robert Pennybacker. “And we at PBS Hawaii are thrilled that Kauai schools are so well-represented in this year’s HIKI NŌ Awards.”

“While all stories that air on HIKI NŌ meet our standards, these nominated stories represent the best of the best and set the gold standard for digital storytelling, and we invite all Kauai residents to come and celebrate the great work of the students.”

The public is invited to the festival to view all nominated stories on the big screen, free of charge at an outdoor screening at Island School on Saturday, August 29.  The pre-screening reception begins at 6:00 pm followed by the screening at 7:00 pm.

Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School, Kapaa Middle School, Island School, Kapaa High School and Waimea High School are five of 34 schools statewide to be showcased in the HIKI NŌ Festival, which will also take place in Hilo, Kona and on Maui and Oahu.
