Don’t miss your chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., sponsored by Fayette EC

Imagine it: You meet up in Austin with more than 150 other teens from across rural Texas and then fly to Washington, D.C., for a fun-filled week of adventure and inspiration that includes meeting congressional leaders, visiting national monuments and historic sites, touring Smithsonian Institution museums, going on a boat cruise on the Potomac River, and rallying with more than 1,900 fellow students for a day of exciting leadership speakers—all without having to spend a dime of your own money.

If that sounds like a trip you don’t want to miss, now is your chance! Fayette Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for the Government-in-Action Youth Tour, happening June 11-19, 2023.

Youth Tour is a youth leadership program sponsored by Fayette EC and organized by Texas Electric Cooperatives and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives across the state and nation have been sending young adults on this action-packed, all-expenses-paid trip to the nation’s capital. And every year students return saying that it’s nothing short of a trip of a lifetime.

For your shot at winning a spot on Youth Tour, apply now for Fayette EC’s contest. To apply, visit and fill out an application. Applications will be judged by an independent panel of judges who are not affiliated with the cooperative and must arrive at Fayette EC by January 20, 2023. No late applications will be accepted.
