Several public and private school students in grades 7-10 submitted essays for this year's topic: Kapu Aloha (to act with restraint, love, and understanding) when faced with confrontation or opposition, which Eddie Aikau practiced as a Ka'i (proctector, guardian) of Waimea Bay and the Hawaiian culture. The students were to provide examples of these values in Eddie's life.
