Honolulu, Hawaii — Ten Hawaii high school seniors will receive four-year full-tuition merit scholarships at Hawai‘i Pacific University as winners of the HPUbiz4good Scholarship Challenge.

The final competition on February 18th included a set of finalists who produced “pitch” videos, a project proposal, and visual displays of their proposed projects.
