Kick off the school year with the 2019 student-designed HI Pride T-shirt available at the University of Hawaiʻi Bookstore System. This year’s HI Pride T-Shirt Design Contest winner is UH Mānoa alumna JinLing Yan from Honolulu.

Yan received 885 votes for her HI Pride design depicting the Hawaiian islands and the hibiscus. “The Hawaiian native yellow hibiscus is our state flower, and it perfectly represents the warmth from all of the people and our beautiful ʻaina,” she said.
