Four local high school students will be packing their bags for a weeklong, all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., this June as winners of the 2014 Youth Tour sponsored by the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative (GVEC). This year’s winners submitted a photo essay about their community and why it makes their heart swell with pride.

The winners of the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative Youth Tour photo essay contest are Cameron Ahrens of John Paul II Catholic High School, Kelly Poore of La Vernia High School, Cameron Bargfrede of Seguin High School, and Karlee Krum of Gonzales High School.

“These students did an excellent job of seeking out what makes their community special and expressing how the people and places within have molded them into productive young men and women,” said Tammy Thompson, GVEC corporate communications and public relations manager. “The hard work and dedication exhibited by this group of students shows they are deserving of this trip and will represent GVEC well in Washington, D.C., this summer.”

The trip to D.C. is part of the national Electric Cooperative Youth Tour hosted each year by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Sponsored by the cooperative, it’s proven to be a life-changing experience by giving local students the opportunity to meet other students from cooperatives around the nation and allowing them to learn firsthand about our country’s heritage, the important role electric cooperatives play in the community, and how our federal government works. While on the Youth Tour, the winning students will meet their Texas House representatives and senators during a visit to Capitol Hill, as well as visit our nation’s exciting museums, memorable landmarks, and breathtaking memorials.
