Student Essay Winners

1999 essay winners

In past years, the Museum conducted a statewide Tsunami Essay Contest. Hawaii school children in grades 5-12 wrote essays responding to the question, "Does anyone you know have a tsunami story to tell?" Contestants conducted oral history interviews with survivors and witnesses of the past tsunami events that have struck the state.

Would you like to find out who won and read the stories of those that survived? The winners and their essays from 1995, 1997, 1998 and 1999 are available online.
