Hayden Meets Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and is Recognized at the State Capital

Today at the Hawaii State Capital building auditorium, kids from around the State were recognized for their winning artwork for the art that has hung in the State Capital for “Youth Art Month” sponsored by the Hawaii Art Education Association.

Five kids from Kamehameha Schools Hawaii Campus were selected to go over there today based on judges decision on who’s art was the best in each class and the judges selected my son!

I knew that my son was getting awarded along with all the other kids that were there… but I was even more surprised that his artwork was considered “TOP TEN” in the STATE!

Hayden got a special certificate for being "Top Ten" according to the judges.
