Second announcement for Holy Nativity’s Hopeathon Hawai’i, our first-ever virtual game coding contest. Designed to inspire Middle and High school students residing in Hawai’i to code games stressing positive values such as faith, hope and love, Hopeathon Hawai’i will be used to illustrate these values for our beloved Holy Nativity School students--as well as preK--Elementary students everywhere--in a fun format online.
Our contest is scheduled to be held virtually starting on August 6th; it will culminate on the weekend of December 5th at Holy Nativity. If you are able to help us by reviewing game rules for legal compliance, identifying great sponsors, or just plain have questions, feel free to contact Alison Kittle at email@example.com. Mahalo, and Get With the Game!

"Do not pray for easy lives!
Pray to be stronger men and women!
Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers
Prayer for powers equal to your task,
Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle. But you shall be a miracle.
Every day you shall wonder at yourself
at the richness which has come into you,
by the grace of God."
