The Young Artists of Hawai‘i is an annual student art exhibition that recognizes creative excellence among Hawaii’s public and private school students in grades Kindergarten through sixth grade. Presented by the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Hawai‘i State Department of Education, and the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority.
The program was established by the Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (HSFCA) to recognize and display student artwork in accordance with Section 9-4, Hawai‘i Revised Statutes.
The program is funded through the Works of Art Special Fund and provides opportunities for students to participate in a juried art competition, much like the prestigious Artists of Hawai‘i biennial exhibition hosted by the Honolulu Museum of Art. Permanent display facilities were designed and constructed for the Pa Kamali‘i Courtyard at the Hawai‘i Convention Center and a competitive annual exhibition was development by HSFCA in cooperation with the Hawai‘i Department of Education, Hawai‘i.
