Medina Electric Cooperative is accepting applications for the 2022 Youth Tour trip. Three winners will each receive a $500 scholarship and an all-expenses-paid trip to Austin, Texas, and Washington, D.C. The trip will take place June 12 – 21, 2022.
Youth Tour is an action-packed trip to the Texas and U.S. capitols with more than 150 students and chaperones from across Texas. Once in Washington, D.C., students will visit Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, the 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.
High school sophomores and juniors whose parents or legal guardians have an active membership with Medina Electric are eligible for the program. Get more details and access the online application at MedinaEC.org/YouthTour or contact us at YouthTour@MedinaEC.org for more information.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 and 2021 Youth Tour trips were canceled. Medina EC held a Youth Tour Day for the 2021 winners, which included a live line safety demonstration and speaking with State Representative Andy Murr’s office (House District 53), State Senator Roland Gutierrez (State District 19), U.S. Congressman Tony Gonzales (District 23) and Medina EC CEO Mark Rollans. A similar event will be held for all 2022 winners.
Deadline to apply for Youth Tour is January 7, 2022.
