Students Have Chance to Win Washington, D.C., Trip
United seeks high school student applicants for the 2016 National Electric Cooperative Youth Tour trip to Washington, D.C. No place in this country offers a better venue to see democracy in action and to learn what the U.S. flag stands for than Washington, D.C., and electric cooperatives should pave the way for youths to have such an experience. Lyndon B. Johnson made that statement in 1957. Since that time, Texas electric cooperatives have adhered to that philosophy, joining other co-ops from across the country in sponsoring trips to the nation’s capital for young students interested in witnessing government in action. United will again sponsor a trip to Washington, D.C., June 8-17, for two fortunate high school students. The two students are selected via a contest.
This contest is open to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who attend a high school or are home-schooled full-time in United’s service area. Each contestant must complete and submit an application, which can be filled out online at HERE. Applications must be submitted no later than Friday, February 12, 2016.
