Art Contest Promotes Warnings On Methamphetamine Use

Hawaii Meth Project has announced its 2014 “Break the Ice” Art Contest for students in grades 7 through 12. Endorsed by the organization’s Teen

Advisory Council, the contest is designed to spread awareness about the risks of methamphetamine and to encourage kids to live a drug-free life.

“We are excited to support this contest, which educates our peers and the public about the dangers of methamphetamine in a different and engaging way,” stated Mari Domingo, a senior at Mililani High School and second-year member of the council. “The contest is aligned with our efforts to promote healthy and educational activities among our peers, and continue to spread the organization’s ‘Not Even Once’ message.”

Categories for the contest include: traditional and digital art (up to $300 prize for the top entries in two divisions — grades 7-9 and 10-12); and sticker design (winner receives $100 prize).

There also will be a People’s Choice Award with a $100 prize for the entry that receives the most “likes” on Facebook. The People’s Choice Award voting period begins Oct. 23 on the Facebook page.

The submission period ends Oct. 20 at 5 p.m. Entrants should visit or and choose one of more than 350 pieces of content as direct inspiration for their artwork.

Entries must be original, unpublished artwork and cannot incorporate or include anything that would violate copyright, trademark law, etc., of any third party. Specific rules and guidelines are available at
