Honolulu – The Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts (MOCA) has selected “Kalikimaka Kritters” as the theme for the city’s 33rd Annual Holiday Wreath Contest.
The public is invited to prepare submissions for the contest, which is held as part of the traditional Honolulu City Lights celebration.
Entries will be accepted in three contest divisions: Adult, open to any individual or group with participants ages 18 and older; Youth, ages 17 or younger; and a Theme Category, for wreaths that depict the “Kalikimaka Kritters” theme.
A ribbon and monetary award will be given to the winners in each division. The first place prize is $150; second place is $100; and third place is $75. The overall Best in Show wreath will receive the Mayor’s Holly Award of $200. In addition, six Judges’ Choice Awards will be presented with monetary prizes of $25 each. Each entrant, individual or group, may win only one award. Judging will be based on workmanship, creativity and use of materials. Wreaths in the theme category will be judged on the incorporation of the theme into the wreath.
