Poetry of Forgiveness, Honoring Queen Lili'uokalani

Hawai'i Forgiveness Project: Arts Awards Entry

Thank you for submitting an entry to the Poetry of Forgiveness Awards! Your participation will enrich everyone who attends the event this year, and all who see and hear about it through the press and this website, worldwide.

This year, the Forgiveness Arts Awards focus exclusively on Queen Lili'oukalani -- her life, words, actions and her profound example of forgiveness.
We hope that your participation will benefit you, both personally and professionally. Our commitment is to highlight the winning poetry to the maximum possible audience, and to treat your creative work with the highest respect. Awards will be presented personally at Hawai'i International Forgiveness Day, the first Sunday in August.

To submit a nomination, please first review the Entry Qualifications and background, at http://www.hawaiiforgivenessproject.org/awards/. Then fill out this form; carefully describe you and your work, and the connection of the piece you submit to the theme of forgiveness. Provide us with contact information that will allow us to quickly and easily reach you, if you are a winner or runner-up.

A judge and a supervising committee will review the nominations up to the deadline. We may contact you for further details. Those being honored will be notified at the email and/or telephone number you provide.
