The Environmental Services Department will select first, second and third place winners from middle school and high school student entries, with all winners receiving trophies. Winning students will be awarded during a regular El Paso City Council in the spring of 2017.
The winning PSAs will be televised on City TV, the City’s government channel, and showcased on the City’s YouTube and other social media pages.
