Young people from Texas meet face to face with one of their national representatives in front of the US Capitol during the 2013 Government in Action Youth Tour, sponsored by electric cooperatives across the country.
Bandera Electric Cooperative is again sending four area students to Washington, DC to participate in the Government-in-Action Youth Tour.
Each year BEC awards an all-expense paid trip to our contest winners to join other students from across the country at our nation's capital. Students learn about electric cooperatives, American history, and US government, and walk away with a greater understanding of their roles as citizens. They have the opportunity to see monuments, meet congressmen, and learn about other parts of the country from other students their age.
This year's tour will be June 12-20. Completed applications and essay must be submitted to any of our office locations, submitted on-line, emailed, or postmarked on or before Feb. 14. For an application and contest rules/qualifications, please visit www.banderaelectric.com.
