About Paint the State
Paint the State is a program of the Montana Meth Project. The statewide public art contest engages Montana teens and adults in on-the-ground drug prevention. The contest harnesses the passion and creativity of participants to produce monument-sized public works of art that inspire drug-free lives and incorporate the Meth Project’s “Not Even Once” message. This summer, more than $100,000 will be awarded to winning participants including three $10,000 grand prizes! One entry could win up to $20,000.

About the Montana Meth Project
The Montana Meth Project was founded in 2005 with the mission to reduce first-time teen Meth use. Through public service messaging and community outreach programs, the Meth Project arms Montanans with the facts about Meth. The nonprofit remains the only organization in the state solely charged with reducing Meth use.
