Don’t Mess With Texas Scholarship

Texas high school seniors, start your essays. 

Due: March 26th, 2016

The 2016 Don't mess with Texas Scholarship Contest is live. Texas high school seniors can now apply for help with college expenses.

Sponsored by Forestar and presented in partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful, the Don’t mess with Texas Scholarship recognizes the achievements of high school seniors who have taken leadership roles to prevent litter in their schools and/or communities to build awareness of the Don’t mess with Texas initiative.

This year, prize awards have doubled. One $6,000 grand prize scholarship and two $2,000 scholarships will be awarded in May 2015.

Any high school senior currently attending public, private, or home school in Texas and planning to pursue a two- or four-year degree at an accredited Texas college or university next year may apply.

Both digital and mailed applications will be accepted and will be judged based on student essays detailing creative solutions to litter problems.

More than half a billion pieces of visible litter accumulate on Texas roadways each year, and Texans ages 16 to 34 are the most likely to litter. Essays give students a chance to show how their efforts raise awareness and motivate a new generation of Texans to stop litter and put trash where it belongs.
