We already know that Alaska Airlines loves Hawaii as much as it loves Alaska—at least it seems that way from all their nonstop flights to the islands. However, now they’ve really confirmed this by teaming up with the Hawai'i State Department of Education the Hawai'i Association of Independent Schools to get some pretty plane pictures. Contest forms will be handed out at over 400 schools, and it looks like well over 200,000 keiki will have a chance to get their doodles and drawings on the outside of a plane.
The deadline for the drawings is set for the end of November, and then final judging will take place in December. The results are scheduled for January, and the plane will then be scheduled to make its debut in the spring of 2013. The grand prize student will score a trip for four to any Alaska Airlines destination as well as a $5,000 scholarship—and of course a custom painted airplane that he or she designed.
