Teachers from Hawai’i public schools can apply for Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Project Grants to help advance their environmental education goals. Previous grantees have used KHF funds for garden supplies, eco-footprint workshops, vermicompost trainings, and more. One school has raised enough worms to start a commercial-scale vermicomposting bin for their campus food waste!

6th Grade Smoothie Competition

Kamaile Academy, Waiʻanae, Oʻahu

Kamaile Academy students familiarized themselves with the ʻĀINA Food Guide by making a well-balanced snack. Students created smoothie recipes from a predetermined ingredients list and had to do it under a set budget. Judges presented awards for the tastiest, most micronutrients, most macronutrients, and least expensive smoothie. The Smoothie Competition was highly competitive, gave the students a chance to use local ingredients, brought excitement about eating, both "good for you" and "tasty."
