Want to spend a week of your summer in Washington, D.C., with 60 rising high school seniors? Here’s your chance.
South Carolina high school teachers and guidance counselors can apply to join the Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina on the 2014 Washington Youth Tour. Two applicants will be selected as chaperones for the trip, set for June 14–19.
Every summer, the state’s 20 electric co-ops send high school students and chaperones on an expense-paid trip to our nation’s capital. The trip is coordinated by The Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina, Inc., the state association of co-ops. While in D.C., the students meet South Carolina’s congressmen, visit monuments and historic sites, tour museums and take part in special Youth Tour programs with 1,500 other high school students from across the country.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 3, 2014. Apply here.
