City of Duncanville – The City of Duncanville congratulates Duncanville High School student Ariana Kimball for her winning art entry in the Don’t Mess with Texas Elementary Art Contest.

Keep Texas Beautiful received over 4,300 entries, and her entry will be featured in the 2018 Don’t Mess with Texas calendar.

The contest is a joint effort by Keep Texas Beautiful and TxDOT to motivate young Texans to not litter and to encourage others to keep Texas roadways and the environment free from trash. The contest was open to Texas students enrolled in kindergarten through twelfth grade and sponsored by H-E-B/Central Market.

The Keep Duncanville Beautiful board worked with Duncanville’s independent school district to announce the contest and raise awareness.

Bobby Cutler Hill, Keep Duncanville Beautiful Chair, stated she is thrilled about the youth submissions.

“The Keep Duncanville Beautiful Board is delighted a student from Duncanville has submitted a winning entry in the Don’t Mess with Texas contest,” said Hill. “We feel education regarding litter control and conservation of our natural resources starting at an early age helps students to form good habits throughout life. We would also like to commend the parents who encourage children in these endeavors, congratulations.”
