AustinThe Don’t Mess With Texas Scholarship Contest is now accepting applications for the 2022 academic year.

Any high school in Texas who is currently attending public, private, or home school and plans to attend an accredited Texas college or university in the fall of 2022 is eligible to apply. Judges will select winners based on student results demonstrated in pioneering projects or events that focus on educating communities about the importance of keeping our country clean and litter-free.

The Don’t Mess With Texas Scholarship Contest, offered in partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful, will award a total of $9,000 in scholarships in May 2022. The 2022 Scholarship Contest Awards are sponsored by Buc-ees and iHeart Media.

“It is important for younger generations to realize that they have the ability to find long-term solutions that can transform their environment into a litter-free one,” said Becky Ozuna, Program Manager for the Don’t Mess With Texas Campaign.

The Don’t Mess With Texas campaign has been educating Texans about litter prevention since 1986. The program includes a grassroots partnership with “Keep Texas Beautiful,” annual “Trash-Off” community outreach events and the “Adopt the Highway” volunteer program.
