EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Any Texas high school senior currently attending public, private or home school and planning to attend an accredited Texas college or university in the fall 2022 semester is eligible to apply.

According to TxDOT, judges will select winners based on the students’ proven results in leading projects or events focused on educating communities about the importance of keeping our state clean and litter-free.

It’s important that younger generations understand they have the power to create long-term solutions that
can transform their environment into one that is litter-free.
