The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s Take Care of Texas program announces the winners of its 6th through 12th grade video contest. Students throughout the state submitted 30-second videos showing how Texans can help keep the air and water clean, conserve water and energy, or reduce waste.

A panel of judges narrowed 265 entries down to 12 finalists. Members of the public then voted on those 12, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place standings were decided by TCEQ commissioners, executive staff, and representatives from the contest partner, Waste Management of Texas, Inc.

On May 17, the TCEQ commissioners and a representative from WMTX will present prizes to the first place winners as part of the TCEQ’s Environmental Trade Fair and Conference in Austin. WMTX has agreed to continue to partner with Take Care of Texas on video contests for the next three years.

Take Care of Texas is a statewide campaign from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that provides helpful information on Texas’ successes in environmental protection and encourages all Texans to help keep our air and water clean, conserve water and energy, and reduce waste.
