On this episode of HIKI NŌ – Hawaiʻi’s New Wave of Storytellers, learn how Hawaiʻi students shine on the national video storytelling stage as they gear up to compete in the 2022 Student Television Network, or STN, competition.

The STN competition has been called the “Superbowl of student video competitions,” as well as “HIKI NŌ on steroids.” To explain why, this episode consists of an encore presentation of the 2016 documentary Aloha Atlanta: HIKI NŌ at the Student Television Network Competition. This half-hour documentary captures the experience of Hawaiʻi’s HIKI NŌ schools at a national digital video competition through the eyes of students from Kauaʻi’s Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School. The 2016 Student Television Network Competition took place in Atlanta, Georgia, and brought together thousands of middle and high school students from across the country to compete in time-intensive, deadline-driven contests in the production of news features, anchor presentations, short films, public service announcements and other forms of visual storytelling. Although the Chiefess students went to Atlanta with the intention of winning, the lessons they learned along the way, including teamwork, collaboration, grace under pressure, and the importance of friendship, were more valuable than the awards they took home. The Hawaiʻi schools combined took home 34 awards and cheered for one another as one team (Team Hawaiʻi) during the awards ceremony.
