HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii residents can vote on an airplane design they believe best represents their culture.

Alaska Airlines is hosting the "Paint the Plane" contest, which features three designs submitted by Hawaii schoolchildren. The three were chosen from more than 2,700 submissions in a contest sponsored by Alaska Airlines, the Hawaii Department of Education and Hawaii Association of Independent Schools.

The designs include a canoe sailing the islands among wildlife; hula dancers against a backdrop of waves and cliffs; and a canoe, the hibiscus and Hawaiian Island chain, with the words: "Spirit of the Islands."

Voting is open until Dec. 18, and open to Hawaii residents only.

Alaska Airlines says the contest winner will be announced Jan. 10. The plane, with the winning design, is to be unveiled in the spring.
