MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - West Oahu Islander -

Video pro­duc­tion teams from West Oahu schools are look­ing good for the 2014 statewide ‘Olelo Youth Xchange Stu­dent Video Com­pe­ti­tion, with 10 of their en­tries selected as fi­nal­ists.

The awards ban­quet May 5 at Ko Olina re­sort will present high-def­i­ni­tion Sony dig­i­tal video cam­eras to the win­ners in each of 37 cat­e­gories. Or­ga­niz­ers say that sub­mis­sions this year have jumped 22 per­cent, mak­ing the 11th an­nual con­test a hot com­mod­ity.
