Children in Hawaii are being invited to get involved in the "Paint the Plane" contest.
Alaska Airlines is working with school officials in Hawaii on the contest where school-aged children are being asked to create artwork honoring the unique culture of Hawaii. The art work will adorn a Boeing 737-800.
The airlines announced Wednesday that it has appointed a 10-member judging panel for the statewide contest.
The panel will select the top three designs. Hawaii residents will then vote for the winning design in online voting to be held from Dec. 11-18.
Students in kindergarten through 12th grade from public, private and home schools have until the end of Nov. to submit their designs. Contest details are available at www.alaskaair.com/hawaii .
