Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative is offering high school students in its service area the opportunity to get an up-close view of national and state government.
For over 50 years, electric cooperatives across the state and nation have selected students to go on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. The tour also includes a visit to the Texas State Capitol and the Bullock Texas State History Museum, plus a $1,000 scholarship.
Students must be in the 11th or 12th grade and live in the home of a parent or legal guardian who is a current Bluebonnet member and whose primary residence is within the co-op’s service territory.
Applicants must submit a completed application form and brief video limited to 5 minutes by 5 p.m. on January 20th. Finalists should be prepared to attend a personal interview on February 27th at 6 p.m. at Bluebonnet’s headquarters in Bastrop.
Applications are available at www.bluebonnet.coop.
