About Paint the State

Paint the State, a program of the Montana Meth Project, is the state's largest public art contest with the goal to engage young Montanans in on-the-ground drug prevention outreach.

The Meth Project invites all Montana educators of 7th — 12th grade to sign-up for Paint the State and lead student participation in this exciting art contest. The first 250 educators to sign-up will hold their spots to receive a $250 stipend towards art supplies for creating their student team entries.

Students who participate in Paint the State will...

  • Learn about the risks of Meth use and the Meth problem, the state's top drug problem.
  • Engage in authentic peer-to-peer conversation about drug use.
  • Create monument-size pieces of art that spark community dialogue and raise awareness.
  • Inspire Montanans to live vibrant drug-free lives.
  • Enter to win cash prizes up to $3,000 for the winning teams.

Paint the State participants will be forever changed in how they think about drug use. They will be Montana's new drug prevention ambassadors.
