HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Turtle Bay Resort is hosting the annual North Shore Ocean Fest, featuring educational activities, entertainment and locally sourced cuisine, to benefit the North Shore Ocean Education Coalition. The event will be on June 1, 2013.

The free celebration will include notable speakers, film screenings, a silent auction, and more. The 2013 Ocean Fest will also include poster and literacy contests themed "Malama i Ke Kai (Protect the Ocean)," open for submissions from students at all Hawaii K-12 schools from April 1-30, 2013. This year we will also sponsor a Film Fest competition for short films on the ocean, culture and community.

The North Shore Ocean Education Coalition includes involvement from the NOAA Fisheries Service; the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary; the Monk Seal Foundation; the nonprofit Malama Pupukea-Waimea; education and environmental stewardship program Navigating Change; Hui O Hau'ula; and Turtle Bay Resort. The coalition assists in providing curriculum, materials, and learning opportunities to teach youth and the community to care for the ocean.
