Senior Spencer Ilagan was chosen as People’s Choice for his age group in the Shriners Hospital for children “Under the Sea” art competition. The competition’s purpose was to find a piece to serve as inspiration for the new EOS imaging system being implemented in the hospital: the first on the island.

“For this competition I wanted to try something that was not in my comfort zone. So this led me to choose watercolor and focus on the subject of whales. I have done many art pieces with underwater creatures such as turtles, octopus and even dolphins. Trying out whales proved to be a slight challenge but one that I was up for,” stated Ilagan.

The competition was not only a way to showcase personal talent, but also a way for artists to promote the EOS system’s implementation. Ilagan explained, “The chance to do what I love and be able to positively impact the keiki was something that made me very adamant to do my best in this contest.”

Ilagan hopes to continue art in college and career, and participate in competitions such as these in the future.
