What is the Government-in-Action Youth Tour?
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, but 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 12-21, 2022, sponsored by Concho Valley Electric Cooperative and organized by Texas Electric Cooperatives. Apply to Concho Valley EC’s Youth Tour contest for a chance to win a ticket for this adventure, called by many -- "The Trip of a lifetime!"
Youth Tour is an action-packed trip to the U.S. capital with about 125 of your peers and chaperones from across Texas. You’ll visit the Washington National Cathedral, Arlington National Cemetery, Smithsonian Institution, memorials and more. Activities include seeing a performance at the Kennedy Center and meeting elected officials.
You could be part of this legacy shared by the more than 3,800 past Texas Youth Tour students who have participated since 1965. To apply, submit an application and an essay to be judged independently through Concho Valley Electric Cooperative.
