Students Promote A Drug-free Lifestyle Through Artwork
Students in grades 7-12 once again can showcase their artistic talent in Hawaii Meth Project’s annual “Break the Ice” art contest, which is aimed at communicating the risks of methamphetamine use, as well as the importance of living a drug-free life, through art.
Empowering Hawaii’s youths to lead a drug-free lifestyle is at the core of nonprofit Hawaii Meth Project’s mission.
Heading up the project is the organization’s Teen Advisory Council, comprised of 22 public and private school students from around the island.
Categories include traditional and digital art (up to a $300 prize for top entries in two divisions: grades 7-9 and 10-12), as well as sticker design (winner receives $100).
The submission period ends at 5 p.m. Oct. 20.
There also is a People’s Choice Award ($100) for the student who receives the most “likes” on Facebook. Judging for this award begins Oct. 23.
Those interested can visit hawaiimethproject.org or methproject.org. There, students will be able to choose one of more than 350 content pieces, ranging from interactive facts, personal stories or information from experts, as inspiration to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
According to Hawaii Meth Project, entries must be wholly original, unpublished artwork.
For specific contest rules and regulations, go to facebook.com/hawaiimethproject.
Judging will be based on how well the student portrayed the meth-prevention message, as well as thought, planning, artistic effort and creativity.
Contest winners will be announced in November.
