2016 Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to the 5 Student Paddlers that won our 2016 Live Like You Paddle Student Scholarship.

Students 18 and under enter the KIALOA Paddle Scholarship with a project that expresses how outrigger paddling teaches Hawaiian values. When we receive the projects at the end of May each year, all of us at KIALOA review the entries and use a scorecard to judge.  This is really fun for us and we look forward to it every year!

The scorecards are added up and the top 5 students are chosen to win a FREE KIALOA Outrigger Paddle of their choice.
