What's it like to grow up in the Hawaiian islands?  Much is the same as any place else, but some is quite different.  Best to let our keiki (children, kids) tell you themselves, right?  Some quotes from around the Web are listed on the left below the link to the directory of school Web sites.  Below are some of the recent entries to ThinkQuest Web site competitions from Hawai'i students that will provide a good picture of life in the islands, past, present and future, from kid perspective.  We think the future's in good hands!
