Hawaii Teens “Take a Stand Against Meth” Through Art

Governor Neil Abercrombie congratulated student participants in the Hawaii Meth Project’s “Take a Stand Against Meth” art contest yesterday afternoon. Students were greeted by the Governor in the State Capitol Chambers Foyer, where many of the entrants’ pieces are displayed.

"I commend the Hawaii Meth Project's staff and youth volunteers for their dedication to preventing meth use and spreading awareness about the dangers of crystal methamphetamine, especially to Hawaii teens," said Governor Neil Abercrombie. “Hawaii Meth Project’s ‘Take a Stand Against Meth’ art display at the State Capitol demonstrates that our teens care about how Meth impacts their peers, family, and community, and it’s inspiring to see them taking such a proactive stand against this drug."
