GVEC offers Youth Tour contest
GONZALES -- Applications are being accepted through Tuesday, Jan. 15, for the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative’s (GVEC) Youth Tour competition. The contest, open to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors, will give four deserving students the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C., for a week during June 2013.
The contest and trip are part of the national Electric Cooperative Youth Tour hosted each year by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. It’s an unforgettable, all-expense-paid trip giving students the opportunity to learn more about our country’s heritage, the federal government, and the role electric co-ops play in the economy.
While in D.C., students will visit many of the nation’s exciting museums, memorable landmarks, and breathtaking memorials. They will also take a trip to Capitol Hill to visit their congressional representatives.
Students whose parent or guardian is a member of GVEC and lives in a residence served by GVEC are eligible to apply. Children of GVEC employees and directors are not eligible to apply.
