Ruedas is one of four finalists, and auditioned for the internship with the Don't Mess with Texas advertising agency in South Padre Island on March 20. If selected, Ruedas will be featured this summer on the program's Web Site in various Webisodes promoting environmental awareness in Texas.

"I believe in helping the environment, education and state pride. To be able to do this on a larger scale would really help deliver this message even further. I love Texas, and want to be an intern to help encourage recycling and educate others to live healthier lifestyles and have pride in their communities," Ruedas said.

Ruedas is president of The Resident Housing Association at UTPA. The organization developed an eight-week recycling program that was introduced to a Rio Grande Valley elementary school.
