Local Students Experience Trip of a Lifetime

August 26, 2022

Every June, Trico and electric cooperatives across the country send local high school students to spend a week in the nation’s capital as part of the Washington Youth Tour (WYT).

Throughout their week, students meet with elected officials, explore museums, visit historical monuments, and develop friendships that last a lifetime! Highlights of the trip include a tour of the Capital Building, meeting with Congresswoman Debbie Lesko, Mount Vernon, a Washington Nationals baseball game, the Marine Corps Museum, the White House, and a riverboat ride.

“I had such a fun time, thank you so much for this opportunity,” said Rachel Weisbrod, who attends Tucson High School. “My favorite experiences were the boat ride and the Nationals game.”

WYT ignites a passion within students to look at the world with a fresh perspective and create change in their communities. Participating in WYT is an awesome way to learn about our great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week.

Trico is accepting applications for the 2023 WYT. High school juniors who are the dependent child of a Trico Member are eligible to apply. The deadline to apply is November 1, 2022.
