The Hawai’i Meth Project recently announced the anniversary of its ‘Not Even Once’ Mural Project.

In partnership with Oahu-based multimedia artist East-3, 11 motivational anti-meth murals have been created in high schools and community centers throughout the state since the project’s inception.

Three of the 11 murals are on the Big Island. A recent mural was created at Kohala High School, but previously, Kealakehe High School and Kealakehe Elementary school also had murals completed through the HMP.

As part of the organization’s anniversary, HMP is inviting middle and intermediate schools to apply for their campus to receive a larger-than-life mural on a designated wall on campus.

HMP officials say that the NEOMP promotes positive lifestyle choices through engaging aerosol designs by East-3 and trained student volunteers.
