2020 is certainly a year for the record books, and as summer creeps closer, Hawai‘i’s keiki are finding themselves with fewer and fewer options for summer education and fun. In an effort to provide kids of all ages something fun to do over the summer, KTA Super Stores has partnered with ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center, Shaka Tea, and the East Hawai‘i Cultural Center – Youth Arts Series to create the SHAKA (Summer Home Adventures & Keiki Activities) with KTA program, a series of weekly online activities for the month of June.
This series of classes will include DIY, how-to, or educational activities for everyone; KTA encourages everyone to participate, no matter their age or home island, as long as they want to have fun and learn! The weekly activities are designed to help keep participants busy, positive, and engaged as they adjust to a different sort of school break.
“Summer is such an important time in kids’ lives. They’ve endured so many difficulties over the past few months, so we wanted to give Hawai‘i’s keiki something to really look forward to during the month of June. These activities are designed to be engaging and educational, with the added element of excitement at the opportunity to win prizes,” said KTA Super Stores President Toby Taniguchi.
How it works:
Each week, KTA partners will post an activity on their social media pages. After completing the activity, participants will post a photo of their finished masterpiece on social media and tag @ktasuperstores plus that week’s host and hashtag the post #SHAKAwithKTA. ALL participants will receive a special KTA Mascot keychain and will be entered to win one of ten $20 KTA gift cards, as well as prizes from each week’s activity host. Ten winners for each activity will be selected randomly at the end of the submission period; participants can enter every week to win up to $80 in KTA gift cards.
All social media accounts that are participating must be public and following @ktasuperstores and the host of the week to be eligible to win. In observance of social distancing, all prizes will be mailed to the participant at the end of the promotion. Participants must provide an email and valid state of Hawai‘i mailing address to receive their prize. There is no purchase necessary to enter or win.

|About KTA Super Stores|
KTA Super Stores was established in 1916 as “K. Taniguchi Shoten” by Koichi and Taniyo Taniguchi in Waiakea. Today, four generations later, the founders’ great-grandson Toby is President of KTA, whose seventh store, the KTA Express Kealakekua location, opened in 2018. All stores are located on the Island of Hawaiʻi and provide employment for more than 700 local residents.
KTA has always been an innovator in Hawaiʻi’s grocery industry, being the first to build in-store bakeries and delis and the first to use UPC barcode checkout scanners. KTA was also the first to install energy-producing photovoltaic systems, which now are used at KTA’s Waimea, Kamuela, Kailua-Kona, Keauhou and Waikoloa Village locations. Other environmental initiatives include KTA’s Reusable Bag and Recycling programs.
The KTA-exclusive Mountain Apple Brand was created during the island’s sugar mill closures in the 1980’s to provide an alternative income for displaced workers by supporting and selling products exclusively grown and manufactured on Hawaiʻi Island. For more than 100 years, KTA Super Stores has remained true to its founders’ mission of working hard to fulfill the food, household and health care needs of the communities they serve, and by making their customers and associates feel like someone special every day at KTA.
