E KOMO MAI
Welcome to the website of the Hawaiʻi State Student Council (HSSC), the official representation of Hawaiʻi’s 165,000 public school students. The council is comprised of members spanning the several islands of the state who meet on a regular basis to discuss students concerns and action to remedy the present and future issues of education and student life.
It is an absolute honor to serve as your Chairperson of the Hawaiʻi State Student Council. As a senior from Hilo High School, I am proud to lead a council that represents over 165,000 public school students across the state of Hawaiʻi. Under my leadership, the Hawaiʻi State Student Council will be a platform for all. Adequate representation and listening to various points of view are crucial in creating solutions that work in the best interest of everyone.
Enduring through one of the most tumultuous periods in our lives for over a year and a half has been challenging for everyone. But our resilience today can harness the power to change the future, and the best way to create change is by making sure everyone has a seat at the table. As your chairperson, it is my duty to ensure the Hawaiʻi State Student Council is a unified coalition of students that represents and celebrates the diversity of the State of Hawaiʻi. As students, we have the power to create change, and together our voice is Hawaiʻi’s voice.

ENGAGE WITH US
The Hawaiʻi State Student Council is the voice of Hawaiʻi’s 165,000 public school students. The council meets on a regular basis to discuss student issues and youth concerns, and members also address issues before the state Legislature and Hawaii State Board of Education.
HSSC gains its strength from the present network of student councils (state, districts, and schools); however, we would like to expand upon the status quo. We want to establish a network that comprises every student in the state. Hawaiʻi students can accomplish this ambitious goal by taking part in student government and staying informed on the issues.
Our website offers students information on the council’s activities, education updates, and statewide resources. The website further facilitates our desire to hear from our peers, so give us an email–tell us what you think or join our Facebook group and subscribe to our “Tweets.” Developing this network is key to growing in our capacity to initiate change in our schools and communities. We are the voice of the students of Hawaiʻi.
