Request for Time Capsule and Aerial Submissions

Posted on Feb 25, 2019 in HSA News

Aloha mai kākou!

The Hawaiʻi State Capitol is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary on March 15, 2019! In preparation of this event, the committee removed the Time Capsule that was laid in the cornerstone in 1969. Many wonderful items of a bygone era were there to be found by this generation.

Now we need your help in deciding what should go into the NEW Time Capsule that will be sealed behind the cornerstone on May 1, 2019! This is your opportunity to communicate to future generations what the Hawaiʻi of today is like: our hopes, our dreams, our struggles, and our culture. So if you had a chance to tell your future self about what life was like in 2019… how would you do it? If you would like to suggest an item for the 2019 capsule, go to Time Capsule Submissions.

In addition to placing new items in the 2019 Time Capsule, the Committee would like to recreate the historic aerial photographs from the 1969 Time Capsule (and add more). If you have a drone, or fly frequently, and would be interested in donating aerial photographs to the project, please click here: Submit an Aerial Photo.
