Texas high school seniors who care about the environment have the chance to win a college scholarship by composing a 350-word essay explaining what they’ve done to improve the litter situation in their community.
The first-place winner will receive $3,000. The second-and-third place winners will receive $1,000 each.
Don’t Mess with Texas is a litter prevention campaign sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation.
The scholarship is one of TxDOT's efforts to generate more youth involvement in the campaign.
Any high school senior graduating spring 2012, who currently resides and attends school in Texas is eligible to apply, or any seniors planning to further their education at an accredited college or university in Texas.
Submissions should include a 300-to-350-word essay identifying a litter problem in the student’s school or community and the action he or she took to address it, a completed scholarship application sent online or by mail.
For the application, mailing address or further details, visit www.DontMessWithTexas.org. Materials are due via email or must be postmarked by April 20, 2012.
