Do you know any kūpuna women who are skilled in hula and lei-making, love the Hawaiian culture and live the spirit of aloha? If so, encourage them to apply for 2018 Lei Queen.

The City’s Department of Parks and Recreation, which organizes the program, selects court members from different age groups to celebrate phases of life.

The 2018 court will feature Nā Kūpuna (the Elders) and reflect the theme, “Alohi Kea — the brilliant white lei, the platinum of kūpuna.”

There is no age limit, but applicants must be at least 61 years young by Saturday, March 3, 2018.
