You’re a Texas high school student. You’re smart; you have big dreams. Maybe you’ve never been out of the state, and maybe you’ve never flown on a plane. Maybe you want to travel, experience a big city, visit historic landmarks and meet people, and not just fellow high-schoolers but influential public figures, like U.S. representatives.
If that describes you, then you’re a candidate to apply for a slot on the Government-in-Action Youth Tour, an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 17-26, 2020, sponsored by Fayette Electric Cooperative and organized by Texas Electric Cooperatives.
Apply for Fayette EC’s contest to win a ticket for this adventure, which has been called the trip of a lifetime by December 17, 2019.
Youth Tour is an action-packed trip to the U.S. capital with over 150 of your peers and chaperones from across Texas. You’ll visit the Washington National Cathedral, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Smithsonian Institution, memorials and more. Activities include learning about rural electrification, seeing a performance at the Kennedy Center, going on a boat cruise with dinner and dancing, and meeting elected officials.
