Maui students have been invited to design artwork that will appear on JUMPSmartMaui DC Fast Charger stations throughout the island. Hitachi and Maui Economic Development Board have launched the art contest which is open to Maui County students grades K-12.
Interested students are being asked to submit an original design that positively represents the community, environment and clean energy. Winners’ artwork will be installed at existing and upcoming JUMPSmartMaui DC fast charger stations. There are currently stations located at Ka’anapali Beach Hotel, Maui Tropical Plantation, Ma’alaea Triangle (Maui Ocean Center) and Pi’ilani Village Shopping Center. Several new locations are set to open including at Pukalani Shopping Center and Kulamalu Pukalani. An additional 13 stations are planned. An example of winning artwork already installed can be found at the JUMPSmartMaui Queen Ka’ahumanu Center station.
