After many discussions and considerations (what?! are we crazy to take this on?!), it was decided to go ahead with the inaugural Big Island CTE Showcase. The Showcase will be held in conjunction with the Earth & Ocean and Family Health Fun Fair, a collaborative effort by Kealakehe High, Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce, West Hawai`i Community Health Center and UH Sea Grant.
Date: Saturday, April 20, 2013
Time: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Venue: Kealakehe High Gym and surrounding areas

- Deadline for “Intent to Participate” is April 3, 2013. E-mail Nem or Dan if you want to showcase your students’ works.
- No entry or Buy-back fees!
- Set up on Friday afternoon, 4:00 – 7:00 PM; break-down on Saturday afternoon, 3:15 – 7:00 PM. Assistance with set-up and break-down will be greatly appreciated!
GENERAL RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS
- Entries may be submitted by any DOE Big Island intermediate/middle and high school students enrolled in Career & Technology (CTE) classes under the direct supervision of the Career and Technology Education teacher.
- Students in post-high school classes are not eligible.
B. Project Eligibility
- Projects made under the supervision of a CTE teacher are eligible. Career and technology projects must be relevant to job skill learning in occupational areas.
- Any project to be displayed for competition purposes MUST be started, worked on, and completed in the current school year.
- Projects made from commercial kits are not eligible. Students should make component parts wherever reasonably possible. Component parts list should accompany project so judges can rate accordingly if there is any doubt on eligibility. (Example: inlay on furniture, electrical chassis, etc.)
- A student may enter only one project under each classification. However, s/he may enter separate projects in as many classifications as desired.
- Group projects can be entered only in the R & D Division, Power/Auto Mechanics Division, and Auto Body Division.
C. Copyright Laws
All work on the project should be created by the student. The entire project must be the student’s original work. Students and teachers are to verify that each project follows copyright laws on a copy of the cards and are to be left on file with the CTE Showcase Committee. Students should be encouraged to come up with their own original designs. It is OK to be INSPIRED by another logo, photograph or character, but just to change it a certain percentage and then present it as a student’s own work is not okay. Regarding the use of copyright free material, students should be encouraged to use their own original work rather than relying on copyright free material. If copyright free material is used, it’s the student/teacher responsibility to have references to the site available upon request by the CTE Showcase executive committee.
D. Prohibited Projects and/or Displays
Dangerous instruments, dangerous weapons, firearms, or contraband including parts thereof are prohibited for entry in the CTE Showcase. This includes images of the above.
“Dangerous instrument, dangerous weapon, or firearm” is defined as any firearm, or other weapon, device, instrument, material, or substance, whether animate or inanimate, which in the manner it is used or is intended to be used is known to be capable of producing death or serious bodily injury.
“Contraband” means a property, other than which is unlawful to produce or possess, which, as defined by local school rules, is prohibited on school premises because the possession or use of the property on school premises has in the past led to bodily injury or disruption of school operations.
