Illima Navalta Briones during Hawai’i History Day (

My name is Ilima. I need help to get to Washington DC to represent the state of Hawaii in the National History Day Competition. I have worked hard since November 2013 on my research and have successfully competed at the District and State level. I am one of the top two students from Hawaii in the Junior Documentary division that will compete from June 15-19th.

My documentary focused on telling the story of the rights and responsibilities of people in the Philippines during martial law.  More than 67,000 people were arrested and detained at the time, including my grandfather.   Please help me get to DC so I can tell this story at the National level.

Please see this site on how you can help :

About National History Day

A Program of the Hawai’i Council for the Humanities Hawai’i History Day, an affiliate of National History Day (NHD), is a year-long history education program that invigorates the teaching and learning of history in grades 4-12. It promotes a theme-based, research-centered model for history and civics education. Students present their projects in a display, performance, documentary, essay or web site project. History Day culminates in the presentation and evaluation of these projects at school, district, state and national history days.
