HTA Partners with Nā Leo TV for Youth Media Challenge 2024

Mar 21, 2024

Nā Leo plays a vital role in nurturing local talent for the emerging creative, media, and tech industries. To advance this program, Na Leo is launching its inaugural Youth Media Challenge. The challenge aims to elevate Hawai‘i Island youth voice and perspective, providing space for youth to exhibit and publicly showcase their work. The program is supported by the Island of Hawai‘i Destination Management Action Plan (DMAP) through sponsorship by the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority. This project advances DMAP action G2, to invest in community-based programs that enhance quality of life for communities by uplifting approaches to tourism that are reflective of Hawai‘i Island and its different communities. Hawai‘i youth ages 11 – 24 are encouraged to submit a media production around the theme Visit with Respect. The deadline to submit your production is April 19.
