Government-In-Action Youth Tour

Touring the Nation since 1965


High school juniors and seniors- Don’t miss your chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., and a $1,000 scholarship to a university, college, trade or technical school, sponsored by MidSouth Electric Co-op.

Imagine it: You meet up in Austin with more than 150 other juniors and seniors from across Texas and then fly to Washington, D.C., for a fun-filled week of adventure and inspiration. Meet congressional leaders, visit national monuments and historic sites, tour Smithsonian Institution museums, enjoy a boat cruise on the Potomac River, and rally with more than 1,900 fellow students for a day of stirring leadership speakers—all without having to spend a dime of your own money.

If that sounds like a trip you don’t want to miss, now is your chance. MidSouth Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for the Government-in-Action Youth Tour, June 16-24 this year.

For your shot at winning a spot on Youth Tour, apply now. Follow the link below to complete your application and submit an original video. This year’s contest topic is “Without Electricity, How Would Your Day-to-Day Life be Different?”
