In recognition of their achievement, the students were invited to attend an awards banquet on April 27 at the Sheraton Waikiki. The students included Tani-Lei Nishikawa, Gabriela Vasquez, Nahele Kiakona, Reagan Holland, Riyo Williams, and Penelope Moore. Their videos titled, "Side Order", and "Protect Your Brain", were about the health risks associated with over-consuming sodas, and the importance of wearing a bicycle helmet.
