Hawaii Meth Project seeks art contest entries


The Hawaii Meth Project has announced the “Take a Stand Against Meth” art contest, a statewide initiative designed to leverage the creativity and passion of Hawaii’s young people to communicate the risks associated with methamphetamine use.

The “Take a Stand Against Meth” contest challenges Hawaii teens to create original works of art inspired by content from the website, a definitive source of information about the highly addictive drug and its social, mental, and physical impact.

As an inspiration for their artwork, teens can choose from the more than 350 pieces of content on the site, including interactive facts, videos, animation, image galleries, personal stories from users, and first-hand accounts from experts.

Works in any style or medium, with the exception of videos, are eligible for entry.

The contest’s first-place winner will be awarded an Apple iPad, and the runner-up will receive an Apple iPod touch.

A panel of judges will select all winners based on the originality of their concept, as well as their planning, execution, artistic merit, and creativity. In addition, the public will be able to vote for their favorite works online, and the submission with the most votes will win the People’s Choice Award and an Apple iPod Touch.

Finalists will be announced Jan. 8, 2013. The winning works of art and other select pieces will be displayed in the Hawaii State Capitol from Jan. 8 to March 22, 2013, and at Honolulu Hale (City Hall) from March 25 to April 12.

The Hawaii Meth Project art contest is open to all Hawaii students ages 13 to 18. Teens under 18 must have a parent or guardian’s permission to participate.

To be eligible, each entry must be an original, unpublished work of art, communicate a strong anti-meth message, and be inspired by content from the website.
