Hawaii Students Win at Int’l Science Fair, Travel With Help from HRFG

Six Hawai’i high school students, whose trip was made possible in part because of a donation by Honolulu Rail For Growth, won awards at the prestigious Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in San Jose, Calif. reported the Honolulu Advertiser today.

Hawaii students placed 1st, 2nd and 4th in the Grand Awards Division as well as winning special organizational awards. 23 students from public and private schools from the islands represented Hawaii at the International Engineering and Science Fair. This year Intel ISEF hosted more than 1,500 students from around the world, representing approximately 50 countries.

Honolulu Rail For Growth donated $25,000 to the Hawaii Academy of Science at the Hawaii State Science and Engineering Fair to help make the trip possible for these students to attend and continue the tradition of the Hawaii State Science and Engineering Fair. “I believe science fairs can help bring out the potential in our future scientists and engineers,” said Vice President of Transportation Systems and Equipment for Sumitomo Corporation of America, Gino Antoniello. “I am proud that our team has come together in support of such an important issue.”
