Texas high school seniors who are passionate about keeping the Lone Star State litter-free are invited to apply for the 2021 Don’t mess with Texas Scholarship Contest.
The contest recognizes students who are taking an active role in litter prevention in their school or community. Any Texas high school senior currently attending public, private or home school and planning to attend an accredited college or university in the fall is welcome to apply. The contest will award a total of $9,000 in scholarships to three winners in May.
“We’re looking for students who are developing exciting and creative solutions to keep Texas litter-free,” said Becky Ozuna, program administrator for the Don’t mess with Texas program. “We aim to shine a spotlight on their innovations in the hope of inspiring other Texans to do their part to keep our state beautiful.”
To enter the scholarship contest, visit dontmesswithtexas.org. Applications must be received online by 5 p.m. March 31. Sponsors for the Don’t mess with Texas Scholarship include Buc-ee’s and iHeart Media.
Don’t mess with Texas has been educating Texans about litter prevention since 1986. The program includes a grassroots partnership with the Keep Texas Beautiful organization, annual “Trash-Off” community outreach events and the Adopt-a-Highway volunteer program.
