The National Science Foundation and National Endowment for the Humanities have collectively awarded grants totaling more than $448,000 over a three-year period, to fund a project involving the University of Hawaii at Hilo and UH Mānoa to build a digital online repository of spoken Hawaiian language, or ʻōlelo Hawaii.

The project, entitled “Building a Hawaiian Spoken Language Repository,”
will create Kaniāina, a digital corpus, featuring hundreds of hours of audio and video recordings, fully searchable transcripts in ʻōlelo Hawaii, catalog information in both English and ʻōlelo Hawai`i, and a unique crowd-sourcing feature for soliciting enhanced transcription and content-tagging of the recordings from the public.

The recordings and transcripts will be accessible online at Ulukau: The Hawaiian Electronic Library, beginning with phase 1 of the first two collections: Ka Leo Hawai`i and Kū i ka Mānaleo, later this year.

UH Hilo Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (VCAA) Dr. Matthew Platz and the University’s Maintenance Crew have been nominated by the University of Hawaiʻi System for 2017 Governor’s Awards. The awards honor state executive branch employees, managers and work teams who exemplify the highest caliber of public service and dedication to serving the people of Hawaiʻi.

Dr. Platz was selected as the system nominee for Manager of the Year. His colleagues describe him as “a visionary with courage to lead institutional change” and “a true leader who inspires, empowers and brings out the best in those around him.”

The eight-member Maintenance Crew is the system’s choice for Team of the Year. Their positive ‘can-do’ attitude, teamwork and efficiency has enabled them to complete more complex tasks in-house, and save the campus thousands of dollars.

The statewide winners along with the Employee of the Year will be announced at the Governor’s Awards Ceremony May 18 at the State Capitol. For more news about the University, visit hilo.hawaii.edu. That’s the UH Hilo Report. I’m Ken Hupp.

A cast of fifty performing arts majors and graduates join other UH Hilo students and community performers in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Evita. The production is the life story of Eva Peron, who rose from poverty to being the First Lady of Argentina during the dynamic 1940s in Buenos Aires. The love and care of her people drove Eva to croon, “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” as she succumbed to cancer at age thirty-three.

Evita will run for two weekends at the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center. Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, April 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee performance at 2:00 p.m. on April 9th, followed by evening performances on Wednesday through Saturday, April 12 through 15.

Tickets can be purchased online at: artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu, or by calling the Performing Arts Center Box Office at 932-7490.
