A big mahalo to all our sponsors for making this annual competition possible, and mahalo to you for empowering your students to speak out on issues that affect them.

Aloha Educators!  

ʿŌlelo is pleased to announce the launch of our 2016 Youth Xchange Statewide Student Video Competition.

As the State’s largest student video competition, Youth Xchange continues to grow.  Last year’s record breaking 892 entries was quite an accomplishment, but even more impressing was the breadth and depth of the messaging behind each entry.  Thank you for continuing to encourage your students to focus and speak out on issues of concern to them.

Below please find the following:

  1. Links to Sponsored Category flyers; and
  2. Link to Revised Competition Instructions (rules and guidelines).

We’re using improved technology to help streamline our processes so we can accommodate even more entries!  Below is a list of notable changes to the Instructions and Submission process.

  1. Students may only submit entries into one division: Elementary, Middle or High.  Middle schools, ranging from 6th – 8th grade, that are collocated on or integrated with either a elementary and/or high school must submit all Middle school student entries into the Middle school division.
  2. Each entry must be uploaded to ‘Ōlelo’s OmniContest website (link and additional information will be provided by December 1, 2015) between January 16, 2016 and 5:00 p.m. HST on Monday, February 29, 2016. All tabs and fields of the online submission form must be completely filled in and double checked for accuracy; i.e. title, category, first and last names of students, etc. Incomplete submissions may lead to disqualification.  NOTE: Submit the best possible uncompressed file(s) as videos will air on cable television and compressed for streaming online.
  3. Each online entry form signature page must be printed, signed by student(s) and teacher, dated, scanned and saved as a PDF document, and submitted via email to youthxchange@olelo.org by 5:00 p.m. HST on Monday, February 29, 2016.  The following naming convention shall be used for each PDF document: Entry Number – Entry Name – School Name – Teacher’s First and Last names.
  4. The video must have been shot and edited between March 1, 2015 and January 31, 2016. The video must have been written, produced, shot, and edited by students; noting that adult or faculty input must be purely advisory.  Up to five (5) students may be recognized on the entry form.  If selected as a finalist, up to five (5) students, as listed on entry form, will be invited to the awards banquet.  Due to limited funding, space permitting, additional tickets may be purchased at cost for additional students.
  5. Failure to submit online entry form signature page, as described above, will result in disqualification.
  6. Any student that has won twice in past Youth Xchange contests, or who have received extensive or advanced video or animation instruction or assistance (eg. Hiki No!, Student Television Network, etc.), is enrolled in an advanced video or animation class, or has been paid for related work, is eligible to enter only in the Jr. Experts and Experts Categories, respectively.
  7. Deadline for entries and paperwork is Monday, February 29, 2016.

A big mahalo to all our sponsors for making this annual competition possible, and mahalo to you for empowering your students to speak out on issues that affect them.

If you have questions, please contact Mr. Hanalei Y. Aipoalani either by phone (808) 237-2108 or email haipoalani@olelo.org.

Mahalo!
