The coin contest is open to all Big Island students in grades K to 12, including homeschooled children. Students are asked to make a drawing for a design that can go on a coin. The drawing has to represent Maunakea and include different aspects of this majestic mountain: its environment, astronomy, and culture.
PHIS student Luche Ganot, grade 12, won last year's 2022 Mauna Kea Coin Design Contest.
