Students in grades 6, 7, or 8 are invited to enter by drawing or painting an original logo about nēnē on one 8.5 x 11 sized paper.  The entry should include a short slogan about one of the following ideas: (1) Why nēnē are special or; (2) What people can do to protect nēnē.

The park will accept one entry per student. All entries must include the student’s name, school, teacher, grade, and a phone number or email contact for the student’s parents or guardians.

Three winners will be chosen. Each will receive a prize of their choice from books and games donated by the Hawai`i Pacific Parks Association, a non-profit partner of the park. The three winners’ families will each receive a park annual pass (valued at $30). All entries and students’ names will be on display in the park’s Headquarters Visitor Center beginning on Nēnē Awareness Day, September 26.

Original entries must be received by Sept. 21, 2017. Winners’ parents or guardians will be contacted by Sept. 25, 2017. Mail entries to: Nēnē Logo Contest, Interpretation Division, Haleakalā NP, PO Box 369, Makawao, HI 96768. Contest information can be found at
