The application process for the 2019 Don’t mess with Texas Scholarship contest is now open.
Any Texas high school senior currently attending public, private or home school, and planning to attend an accredited Texas college or university in the coming year, is eligible to apply.
The 2019 Don’t mess with Texas Scholarship contest is presented in partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful and the Moody Foundation.
The contest will award one $6,000 scholarship and two $2,000 scholarships in May 2019.
The scholarships recognize the achievements of high school seniors who are taking an active role in preventing litter in their schools and communities while working to build awareness for the Don’t mess with Texas initiative.
TxDOT’s Don’t mess with Texas program has been educating Texans about litter prevention since 1986.
The program includes Adopt-a-Highway and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful as well as spring “Trash-Off” community outreach events.
