Elizabeth Watson, a 14-year-old ninth grader of Vanguard College Prepatory School in Waco, is a finalist in the "Take Care of Texas" Video Contest.

The program is sponsored by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and challenges students to submit a 30-second video promoting positive way to care for Texas.

Watson is one of six students from across the state to have been chosen for the 9-12 grade division. The three videos with the most votes will go on to the final round and receive a scholarship. Public voting ends Thursday, January 25.

Voting takes just a few seconds, and the video is listed under "Elizabeth, 9th grade."
