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.
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.
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the 2021 Washington Youth Tour has been canceled. Check back on our website in October 2021 for details about the 2022 tour.
Trico accepts applications for the Summer Washington Youth Tour in October. For more information, call (520) 744-2944, x1363, or email email@example.com.
I had the most amazing experience in Washington, D.C. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime trip. I would urge all my friends to apply for this trip. I got much more out of this trip than I had to put in and being able to go to D.C. and experience everything I did has definitely made me a better person. I met the most amazing people and I have a deeper respect, gratitude and understanding of our country, leaders and cooperatives. I am forever grateful to Trico for sponsoring this trip and allowing me to go.
