AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Organizers of the iconic “Don’t mess with Texas” advertising campaign are looking for a new tune to promote the anti-trash effort.

The Texas Department of Transportation on Tuesday announced the “Don’t mess with Texas” original song contest. It’s open to Texas residents, ages 18 and above, and runs through October. Contest rules are at Dontmesswithtexas.org .
