Hawai'i Statehood Stamp
Designed by Hawai'i artist and historian Herb Kawainui Kane, Hawai'i s 50th Anniversary Statehood stamp will be issued in summer 2009. In 1984, Kane was honored as a Living Treasure of Hawai'i.

The 50th Anniversary of Statehood Commission
In commemoration of the anniversary, members of Hawai'i's 50th Anniversary of Statehood Commission have focused their attention on community education. Special events or projects that foster community-wide learning include an August 21, 2009 celebration at the State Capitol in Honolulu, Hawai'i.

Airing from August 25, 2008 to August, 2009 on radio and television stations statewide, 50 Voices of Statehood is a project featuring interviews of 50 individuals who speak about their experiences and stories about statehood. Some of the participants are Former Governor George Ariyoshi, U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, Nancy Quinn, Pat Saiki, Retired General Ric Shinseki, and Former Governor John Waihe`e.

School activities include Traveling Exhibits featuring the 50 Voices of Statehood, an essay contest, and a calendar contest. Elementary students will create work for an art exhibit, and all schoolchildren will be encouraged to create Statehood commemorative time capsules.
