Congratulations Roosevelt High School for winning Foodland’s first-ever Shop for Higher Education Video Contest! The winning video is creative, fun, and meaningful – all rolled into one! What a terrific job the video crew and “leading man,” Victor Nhieu, did in producing their video. From Yvonne Elliman to Bruno Mars, Roosevelt High School abounds with talent!

A special mahalo also goes out to McKinley, Kapolei, Kalani and St. Joseph School for participating in the contest too! Each video was so unique and showed how much talent and creativity Hawaii’s youth has. Perhaps there will be someone from Hawaii winning an Oscar in the future. And I never thought I’d see a tiger walking in our aisles – it must have been quite the sight for our customers. Congratulations to all schools for a job well done! We also thank all those who took the time to cast their vote for their favorite video. The best and most important part about the contest is that a deserving senior will receive a $2,000 college scholarship.
You can continue to support Hawaii’s high schools and help them earn scholarships. Simply shop with your Maika‘i card and tell your cashier which participating high school you want to designate. The same number of Maika‘i points you earn, the school will also earn. Foodland will award $200,000 in scholarships to 100 high school seniors! Shop for Higher Education runs through to March 19.
