The Hawaiʻi State Theater Council recognized UH Mānoa’s Department of Theatre and Dance with 19 Poʻokela Awards for Excellence.
A popular course offered by the University of Hawaiʻi–West Oʻahu where students do archeological work at the Honouliuli and POW Internment Camp, as well as Leeward Community College’s new Ka ʻImi ʻIki Education Building, are being featured on local television station KFVE The Home Team in September and October. It is the start of a 12-month long public service announcement (PSA) campaign worth approximately $50,000 given to UH free of charge by KFVE General Manager John Fink.
“A big mahalo to John Fink and the entire team at KFVE,” said UH President David Lassner. “Every UH campus has so many great stories and KFVE is giving us an opportunity to tell some of those stories. We really can’t thank them enough.”
“KFVE is happy to be the conduit to provide UH with a voice to share with a statewide audience all of the good things that are going on and being done in many areas on the many campuses of the University of Hawaiʻi System,” said Fink. “We believe that the people of Hawaiʻi need to hear more often the positive stories of the students of the UH System, and KFVE is proud to share the good news with all.”
Two 60 second long PSAs will hit the KFVE airwaves on Monday, September 1 and the next pair of PSAs is scheduled to begin airing in November.
This is the second year of the free campaign on KFVE. Twelve PSAs covering programs from UH’s ten campuses were shown during the first year.
The PSAs are produced by the UH System Media Production office and are shortened versions of a select group of the nearly 200 UH News web videos and the more than 140 video news releases produced by the office since it was established in May 2012.
