HTC sponsoring 2 students for FRS 2020 Youth Tour

HTC is offering an opportunity for two local high school juniors to be a part of a 5-day Youth Tour in Washington D.C. HTC is excited to partner with the Foundation for Rural Service’s (FRS) 2020 Youth Tour, designed to give 100 students an inside look at the telecommunications industry and historical landmarks at the nation’s capital.

Two high school juniors, carefully screened and hand-selected for the experience, will become familiar with the legislative process by visiting Congress, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and other governmental agencies.  The Youth Tour will also include visits to some of the capital’s historic landmarks, including the Washington Monument, Smithsonian Institution, Jefferson and Lincoln memorials, U.S. Capital, Arlington National Cemetery, Washington Cathedral and Supreme Court. 

“The Foundation for Rural Service’s 2020 Youth Tour is just one of the many benefits exclusive to HTC members and their families,” said Tom Vitt, HTC director of public relations. “We’re happy to support the young people in our communities and enhance their learning with such a unique experience.”

The tour is scheduled for June 6-10, 2020, and will immerse the students in the telecommunications industry while also allowing them to learn through hands-on experiences.

HTC will select the two exemplary candidates who meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have a parent that is an HTC Member
  • Be a high school junior under the age of 18 at time of trip
  • Have at least a C grade point average (GPA) or better
  • Demonstrate leadership in organizations and interest in community through volunteer activities
  • Write a letter explaining why he or she would like to attend and stating his or her future plans beyond high school
  • Obtain a letter of recommendation from a teacher or school official

High school juniors interested in being nominated for the Youth Tour should speak with their school’s guidance counselor about the opportunity. Guidance counselors will submit their suggested nominees no later than Monday, February 24, 2020.

HTC will carefully review each application and select two model students to participate in the Youth Tour. The chosen applicants will be notified by the end of March.
