The Trip of a Lifetime!
Each June, Medina EC sends students on the Government-in-Action Youth Tour, aka "the trip of a lifetime!"
More than 1,500 students from across the country, almost 150 of those being from Texas, take the one week trip to Washington, D.C. Texas students start their trip in Austin to tour the State Capitol before heading to our nation's capital. While in D.C., they will visit museums, Capitol Hill with congressional representatives, Arlington National Cemetery, see a performance at the Kennedy Center, take a Potomac River Dinner Boat Cruise and so much more!
High school sophomores and juniors whose parent or legal guardian is a member of Medina EC are eligible for the trip.
Medina EC pays for all travel expenses including airfare, hotel and food. However, most students like to bring additional money for spending on souvenirs.
Not only is this a great resumé builder, you will meet new friends, learn how our government works, and more.
The entries will be scored by an independent judge.
One student from each of the three voting districts will receive this trip and scholarship. If an application that meets eligibility is not received from one of the voting districts, then the next highest scoring student from one of the other voting districts will receive the trip.
Medina EC reserves the right to select another contestant for the Youth Tour trip if a winner is found to be a poor representative of the program and the cooperative.
