You Could Win a Free Week-Long Retreat to Work in Hawaii
The Hawaii Tourism Authority is giving new meaning to "WFH" with its Work From Hawaii program, a residency program that invites six New Yorkers to work remotely in Hawaii for one week. The program will allow musicians, writers, techies and entrepreneurs to work on their best ideas while vacationing in Hawaii.
The retreat includes a round-trip flight from New York, accommodations with a unique workspace, a daily allowance for meals and a curated itinerary tailored to a particular skill or profession. This seven-day residency is designed to give workers headspace to focus on professional goals while on vacation, according to the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
The accommodations are located across all six islands in Hawaii and are specifically designed for a person with a specific type of career— from videographers to advertising executives to a start-up CEO. But the program is not centered around work only. The program will also include cultural experiences in Hawaii. Take for example the tech lab residency -- a retreat for programmers, app developers and other techies -- located in Maui. The program is designed to "showcase Maui’s diverse landscape and maximize your tech inspiration." The winner of this residency will also have the opportunity to explore an after-work itinerary that highlights the island’s stunning mountains, beaches and pastures.
The residency program runs for a week and will be held in September 2018. To apply you must be a US resident, who lives and works in the greater New York metropolitan area, between 24-36 years of age with a public Instagram account. Those interested can apply online: Work-From-Hawaii.com from April 30 to June 4, 2018. The application includes filling out personal information and pitching why you would get the most out of a particular itinerary. You can only apply to one of the residencies.
