Kupukupu Award

 

2021 Recipients: Kelsey Wai, Nicole Swanson

Kupu in Hawaiian means, “Sprout, growth; offspring; upstart, as one rising suddenly and conspicuously to high position." Kupukupu, like the native Hawaiian fern, is someone or something new and young that is breaking through the ground vertically.

The Kupukupu Award recognizes an individual showing promise of making contributions to the profession of landscape architecture through leadership, design, communication, and service. Nominee must be an ASLA Hawaii Chapter member and an emerging professional in their first five years of practice following graduation from either an undergraduate or graduate program.
