They have a booth set up at the Air-Show, providing information and giving out wrist bands to help spread the word about keeping kids off the drug. Colorado is ranked in the top ten for total meth users. The project is working their hardest to reduce the rate for users by going to schools to help raise awareness.

"The rate that teens that are identifying the risk of meth has gone up dramatically, nine points since we began. So we are making an impact and we are going to see that translate into much better results in the future," said Colorado Meth Project Program Manager Jonathan Judge.

The Project wants to get more people involved as volunteers. Today there were volunteers who were previous users or their families were affected by meth. For more details on the Project, visit www.coloradomethproject.org.
