Punahou Aloha Bowl team first place 2020

Hawaiʻi Ocean Sciences Bowl, February 15th, 2020

On Saturday, February 15th, 2020, high school students from all over the state competed in the Hawaiʻi regional competition for the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB), called the Aloha Bowl. Team Punahou (pictured above; L-R: Mattingly Morales, Jonah Johnson, Maya Mastick, Ethan Lau, Noah Chung) took first place and will be representing Hawaiʻi in the National Ocean Sciences Bowl held in April 2020. They will be traveling to Gulfport, Mississippi for the national finals competition.

This educational program was developed to stimulate interest in the ocean sciences among high school students and demonstrate to the public the importance of the oceans in our daily lives. One of the long-term goals of the program is to foster the next generation of marine scientists, educators, and policy makers for the ocean sciences.
