2020 High School Pele Awards Update

March 17, 2020

Due to the growing public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the organizers and sponsors of the 2020 High School Pele Awards have decided to cancel this year's award show that was scheduled for May 9.

We believe this is the best course of action to keep our students, teachers, colleagues, friends, and families safe.

Please accept our sincerest apologies and we appreciate your patience as we decide the best course of action moving forward. We'll be sure to post updates here and on social media when we know more about our timeline and the awards announcement. Follow us @peleawards on Instagram and Facebook.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves and others. Follow guidance from authorities, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) by staying home and practicing social distancing. Spread aloha, not germs! Mahalo.
