Children & Youth Day - Robotics Teams

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)-In 1993, Children and Youth Day was established by law as the first Sunday of every October.  Later, Act 30, Session Laws of 1997, established October as Children and Youth Month in Hawai'i.  The Legislature's Keiki Caucus has spearheaded the events for the past sixteen years.  We have had great success with events such as the Hawaii Leader for a Day Program, Children and Youth Day (which last year drew approximately 40,000 attendees) and the Outstanding Advocates for Children and Youth Recognition Program.

 We are fortunate to have the support of many government agencies, corporations and individuals.  We estimate that we received approximately $90,000 in monetary and over $300,000 in-kind donations last year. Through a partnership of government agencies providing in-kind services and generous corporate sponsorships, we are able to put on meaningful, fun and educational activities for our young people and their families.
