On April 19, the Idaho Meth Project launched a statewide public art contest—Paint the State—that encourages Idaho teens to create artistic representations of the dangers of methamphetamine use.

I would encourage Idaho school librarians to take a look at the site and add their data to his map if you can! He is just looking for a general sense of "low", "medium" or "high" level of filtering and any other specific information you care to supply.
