Attention parents: Your child could go on a free trip to D.C.
Each summer the Trico Foundation sends local high school juniors on a trip to Washington, D.C., where more than 1,800 students from electric cooperatives across the country come together to visit our nation’s capital.
The Washington Youth Tour is a great way to meet other students from Arizona and around the country and learn about our nation’s history and politics. Students spend the week visiting monuments and memorials, exploring museums, and touring the U.S. Capitol Building. Students meet with staffers and members of Congress to discuss relevant topics that affect them and their local communities.
Trico is accepting applications for the 2022 Washington Youth Tour, which is tentatively scheduled for June 13-19. For more information and to apply, click here. The deadline to apply is November 1, 2021.
