On March 11, 2009, the Black Law Student Association (BLSA) Chapter of William S. Richardson School of Law (WSRSL) at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa held its 3rd Annual BBQ/Southern Food Cook-off Competition.

First-place winner Chris Santos, a third-year law student, won with his famous ribs. Second-year law student Lahela Hite took second place with her pecan pie. Each received a 7-piece cookware set as a prize.

Purpose of the fundraiser was to raise money to send a team to the National Black Law Student Association‘s (NBLSA) International Negotiations Competition in Irvine, Calif., from March 18 -22, 2009.

This will be the first year that UH will be represented at an annual NBLSA conference. It is great exposure in the national African-American community for both the University and WSRSL.

"Not only was this a competition, but this event gave the WSRSL family an opportunity to fellowship, eat, and take a small break from the regularity of school and work," said BLSA president Byron Walker.
