Congratulations to Monsanto Hawaii’s Outstanding Plant Science Award Recipients

The Hawaiian word kokua means “help” or “support”, and it’s one of Monsanto Hawaii’s core values to support the communities in which we live and work. Throughout the years, Monsanto Hawaii employees have volunteered for numerous educational, environmental, community and humanitarian endeavors to give back to their community. These efforts include Monsanto Hawaii’s annual Outstanding Plant Science Award at the Maui Schools Science Fair. This year’s winners were recently featured in our monthly printed newsletter.
