3 Members of our staff receive an award for their stories on the introduction of Bill 40

Ka Mōʻī Staff 2019-2020

On Feb. 26, Mahealani Deenik, Joby Lum, and Holly Ikeda of the Ka Mōʻī had their stories published on Best of SNO. This would be the first story accepted onto the Best of SNO platform. The Best of SNO is a platform that our WebHost SNO uses to display stories that are of the highest quality out of all high schools using the SNO system. Stories are published on this website on a daily basis and feature high schools from across the nation. The requirements for being able to qualify for the Best of SNO award is a story that needs to be error-free, “stand out from the crowd”, provide context and a discussion, and be appropriately formatted with images, captions, and reporter names.

The stories selected by SNO to be featured on their Best of SNO website was on the topic of Bill 40. Bill 40 was introduced into law by the City and County of Honolulu on Dec. 17th, 2019 that would ban the use of single-use plastics in the food industry. The articles submitted to SNO by our reporters provided multiple angles on Bill 40 from how it would affect consumers to how it will affect the environment.

With one story being selected for Best of SNO, the Kā Mōʻī Staff would need to submit 2 more stories that are chosen to receive the Best of SNO badge for our website. We currently have two badges which are site excellence and story excellence. This is the first year that the Kā Mōʻī staff has won any awards from SNO for their online.
