Youth Tour Wants YOU!

Youth Tour has been a Texas co-op tradition since 1965, when co-ops—inspired by then-Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson who encouraged youths to go to Washington to see their American heritage and government at work, “what the flag stands for and represents”—began sponsoring teens on this trip. Educating and mentoring young people fit in with co-ops’ mission to support the communities they serve. Co-ops not only power homes and businesses across rural and suburban Texas but also invest time, energy and compassion into improving their members’ quality of life. Since the 1960s, more than 4,400 Texans and 50,000 young Americans have gone on what many call the trip of a lifetime.

Originally, the prize for this contest was a trip to Washington, D.C., on the Youth Tour, but due to safety concerns about the COVID pandemic the 2021 trip has been cancelled. Instead, we are offering three winners $3,000 scholarships each!
