Seven students to attend the 2018 Youth Leadership Tour

Applications due by 5 p.m., Monday, January 8, 2018.

Since 1964, more than 50,000 high school students have visited Washington, DC, for one week every summer as part of the Electric Cooperative Youth Leadership Tour. Through Texas Electric Cooperatives (TEC), in conjunction with National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), coordinates the tour, and more than 1,500 students participate every summer. Texas participants have the added benefit of visiting Austin for two days to learn about our state government. 

For 2018, CoServ will award seven North Texas high school juniors an all-expenses-paid tour departing from Austin to Washington, DC, to watch our government in action. The winners join more than 100 other youth from Texas electric cooperative homes June 6–15, 2018 to experience two Capitols. (Sample agenda (pages 6-8) and eligibility requirements.)

Youth Tour winners are eligible to apply for up to a $10,000 NRECA scholarship. (Click here for details.)
