Ocean Day 2014 Presenter Information

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Pacific Island Programs for Exploring Science will host the seventh annual “Ocean Day Mālama Kanaloa Festival” on Sunday, March 9, 2014 from 10 am - 3 pm in Hilo, Hawaiʻi.

We ask your organization to join us to share the importance of understanding & caring for our natural environment with our community by hosting an outreach booth at the 2014 Ocean Day Mālama Kanaloa Festival. The theme of this year’s Festival is “connecting our work to the community”, we are asking presenters to highlight connections between the work they do and how that work benefits our community. We hope this focus will help community members see direct connections to how their families and communities benefit by the work done within Hawaiʻi’s conservation sector.

Provide an Interactive Booth

Presenters will be allocated a 10' × 10' booth to display their organization’s conservation messages and to provide a hands-on and/or interactive experience. Over the years we have received lots of feedback about how great the interactive tables and displays were for young and old alike. We have also received many ideas for activities; let us know if you need suggestions as you plan your outreach booth.

Prizes for Booth Presenters!

We will again provide prizes to Ocean Day Mālama Kanaloa Festival Presenters in the following three categories: Best Message, Most Interactive and People’s Choice. We hope this will encourage even more creative and interactive presentations & displays! Prizes will be awarded after the event.
