Total Awards

This list shows how many total awards each class has won. Currently, each class can win up to 22 awards: 4 as freshmen and 6 each as sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Some classes have tied with themselves for awards: the Classes of 2015, 2014, 2011, 2003, 1998, 1996, and 1975. Each of these classes tied with themselves for only one award, except for the Class of 2015, which tied with themselves for two awards.

The maximum number of awards a class can win has increased over time, because new awards have been added throughout the years: the Charles E. King Cup for co-ed performance was added in 1967; the McGregor Award for outstanding student director was added in 1972; the ʻŌlelo Makuahine award for best use of Hawaiian language was added in 1989; and the Helen Desha Beamer Award for best musical performance was added in 1993.

This list is current as of the 2019 Song Contest. In the list, tied awards are counted twice.
