E KOMO MAI
Welcome to the website of the Hawaii State Student Council (HSSC), the official representation of Hawaii’s 180,000 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.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIRPERSON
My name is Alexandra Abinosa, but you can call me Alex. It is with great pleasure to be given the opportunity to serve the students within the state of Hawaii as the Hawaii State Student Council Chairperson! I am a proud Governor from Farrington High School and undergoing my senior year. For that reason and I would like to leave a legacy not only in the Hawaii State Student Council but in my community!
This will be my fourth year in the Hawaii State Student Council and this year we should center our attention on being more innovative. As the use of technology increases by each generation, I would like to be more effective. A small thing I plan to start is instead of printing forms, I will create documents online and use QR codes! By doing that I will decrease the amount of paper we use. I look forward to what the future has in store for the Hawaii State Student Council and what challenges we will face and overcome. Once again, thank you and ALOHA!

ENGAGE WITH US
The Hawaii State Student Council is the voice of Hawaii’s 180,000 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. Hawaii 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 Hawaii.
