HAWAIʻI STATE LEGISLATURE RECOGNIZES ANNUAL EDUCATION WEEK
Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – The Hawaiʻi State Legislature is proud to present Education Week, a longstanding tradition at the Hawaiʻi State Capitol from March 13-17, 2023. Co-sponsored by Senate Vice President Michelle N. Kidani and House Representative Justin H. Woodson, Education Week will honor and recognize Hawaiʻi’s educators, students, counselors, principals, and staff.
“This week allows us to highlight the important work and achievements of education leaders across the State of Hawaiʻi. Their diligence and commitment are what create a brighter future for our keiki, and they deserve to be recognized for their efforts,” said House Committee on Education Chair Justin H. Woodson.

“Each spring the chairs of the Senate and House Education Committees designate a week during which we invite teachers, students and education professionals to the Capitol to be recognized through floor presentations and education-related events,” said Senate Vice President Michelle N. Kidani (Senate District 18 - Mililani Town, Waipi‘o Gentry, Crestview, Waikele, portion of Waipahu, Village Park, Royal Kunia.) “This year we are particularly excited over our program, as it is the first time in three years that we are returning to our traditional format of inviting our special honorees to our State Capitol to bestow upon them recognition, admiration, and gratitude for their achievements. We do not want their contributions to educational excellence in our schools to go unseen.”
Education Week is an annual event that takes place during the legislative session. Awardees will be recognized during Senate and House Floor sessions throughout the week, with several activities also taking place at the Capitol.
