The Hawaii World War One Centennial Cadet Essay Contest is now in the final year of the program.  There are two more opportunities for Cadets to participate with submissions in October 2018 and March 2019. The purpose of the essays was to help JROTC Cadets learn about Hawaii’s experiences in World War One, and how that conflict brought Hawaii closer to Statehood, as its citizens demonstrated unparalleled levels of patriotism and volunteer spirit. Numerous Cadet Essays have been submitted by the Senior Cadre of each program participating.  For their efforts, these young men and women will receive a WWI Medal and a certificate. At least two of the will be published in the Hawaii Commandery, Military Order of Foreign Wars (MOFW).
