2022 Young Artists of Hawaii Awardees

Maryknoll School
Last Thursday, our grade school campus hosted a special morning assembly to recognize our Spartans who took home awards from this year's 2022 Young Artists of Hawaiʻi competition at the Hawaii State Art Museum.
With entries from K–6 schools statewide, our students won 41 out of 96 total awards! 
You can check out this year's exhibition from May 14 to June 12 at HiSAM and then at the Pa Kamaliʻi Courtyard in the Hawaiʻi Convention Center until March 2023.

Congratulations to all our Spartan artists!
