Not All Heroes Wear Capes

HIKI NŌ #1217

HIKI NŌ 2021 Spring Challenge

This special episode will reveal the winning stories from the high school and middle school divisions of the HIKI NŌ 2021 Spring Challenge competition. This year’s Spring Challenge was entered by 12 student teams from across four islands. Each team was given just four days to create a story based on the following theme: Not all heroes wear capes.

In a non-competition setting, HIKI NŌ stories generally take about two months to complete, and the students are guided every step of the way by their teachers and industry professional mentors. In a HIKI NŌ Challenge, students cannot receive outside help from teachers, mentors or anyone else.

Judges scored the completed entries based on how well the team expressed the given theme, how well they upheld the HIKI NŌ story criteria and production values.

Besides the first-place winners in the middle and high school divisions, the show will also feature stories that received second, third and honorable mention awards.

This special Spring Challenge show is hosted by students from the winning teams.

The HIKI NŌ 2021 Spring Challenge is supported by StateFarm®.
