To apply, you must be a senior at a public or private Texas high school and planning to attend an accredited Texas college or university in the coming year.

Home schooled students can also apply for the contest, which will award one $6,000 scholarship and two $2,000 scholarships this coming May.

The scholarship recognizes senior high school students who have an active role in preventing litter on campus and in their community.
