Don’t Mess with Texas Scholarship available
AUSTIN -- 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 ninth annual Don’t Mess with Texas Scholarship is sponsored by BASF Corp.’s Freeport location, in partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful. Don’t Mess with Texas is accepting essays for the 2012 scholarship through Friday, April 20.
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.
Those eligible include any high school senior graduating spring 2012, who currently resides and attends school in Texas, and/or seniors planning to further their education at an accredited two- or four-year college or university (public or private) in Texas. Materials are due via email or must be postmarked by April 20.
