Think About It: It's Academic, Really

KFVE will be introducing a new game show in prime time right after the new year. "It's Academic Hawaii" will be a weekly competition pitting three members from three local high school teams against each other in an academic quest for excellence. Schools both large and small, public and private, Oahu and Neighbor Islands, will show their stuff in this fast-paced show that salutes and showcases academic achievement and effort.

The future for this state truly does lie in better educating our youth. More jobs in the future are going to require a certain savvy and understanding of technology that keeps morphing and enabling people to do more and more things never before imagined. While this state will undoubtedly always have a major dependence on tourism and its related jobs, there has to be a concerted effort to provide opportunities for our children to flourish in the arts and sciences to allow more doors to open for them in a world where, for the first time, parents are coming to the realization that they might not be able to provide things better for their kids than they had.

And maybe that reality is not the worst thing in the world. Maybe encouraging our kids to do more and do better in academic and philanthropic fields to help themselves and make the world a better place is the best lesson we can provide and the best legacy we can leave behind. Yes, there is more to life than material things. So get ready for some top notch athletes of the brain coming your way when "It's Academic Hawaii" debuts right here on KFVE in 10-weeks! Think about it…
