Students: Apply Now To Win Trip to DC
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-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 12-21, 2019, sponsored by Mid-South Synergy and organized by Texas Electric Cooperatives.
Apply by February 15, 2019 for Mid-South Synergy’s contest for a chance to win a ticket for this adventure, which has been called the trip of a lifetime.
Youth Tour is an action-packed trip to the U.S. capital with more than 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.
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 video to Mid-South Synergy.
