Hawaii nonprofit Mana Maoli has been named a finalist for a prestigious national music award

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Daniel R. Lewis is a philanthropist who is awarding three $500,000 Accelerator awards to those creating positive change in youth through music programs.

For 2023, Mana Maoli Hawai’i is one of the programs nominated.

The educational organization serves approximately 20 Focus Hawaii Charter Schools on Oahu, Kauai and Hawaii Island. Every year they talk to thousands of students, go to schools and hold school assemblies. The non-profit organization says they encourage every child on campus.

In addition to year-round after-school and elective classes, Mana Maoli also has a mobile solar studio where they have live studio and event opportunities.

Under the tutelage of many Hawaiian professionals in a recreational community called Mana Maoli College, students learn about learning and event management.

Keiki works alongside award-winning musicians, engineers and videographers in Hawaii.

The mobile studio, affectionately called “Meleana”, allows the Academy of Music and Multimedia to learn wherever the children are, placing them in a real environment.

The Lewis Award for KHNL’s Music Accelerator Awards will be announced on December 12 at 11:00 a.m. in Tamron Hall.
