April Masini is most recognized for accomplishments as an entertainment industry executive “media maven,” columnist and author. She has always, and remains, most motivated by large scale, cause-driven, projects. Hawaii’s statewide contest, “Share Aloha with the World,” is a testament to Ms. Masini’s talent for creating opportunities to make an impact. This inventive and inclusive contest is noteworthy for many reasons. Among them, it turned The Miss Universe Pageant into a learning opportunity by engaging and challenging children K-12 to express their creativity in a poem, painting or drawing. Her contest submissions still line the walls of Hawaii airports. As co-chair of the 1998 Miss Universe Pageant, she also created and produced nine backto-back, uniquely themed, world-class events, including Hawaii’s largest weekday parade. Ms. Masini created and spearheaded the federal legislation “The Military Check-Off Box for Vets.” It would create an optional checkoff box on all federal tax returns for donations to veterans. Roper Public Affairs & Media was engaged by Ms. Masini to determine public support. Roper stated, after polling, that there was more support for the military check-off box project than for anything previously polled.
