The Maui mikoshi contest was developed exclusively for Maui high school students. Each year there is a competition among Maui high schools to design a mikoshi for the Honolulu Festival. Mikoshi are decorative floats that are unique to specific prefectures in Japan. They are carried by troops of celebrants during their festivals. The winning Maui mikoshi is unveiled and displayed at the Hawaii Convention Center over the Festival weekend. Students of the high school selected as the overall winner visit Honolulu during the weekend of the festival and march in the Grand Parade showcasing their award winning mikoshi.
