Foundation for Rural Service Youth Tour trip to Washington D.C.

Youth Tour Dates – May 31-June 4, 2023

Each year, Ben Lomand Connect sends two qualifying students from our service territory to the Foundation for Rural Service Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. The tour is a chance for students to visit our nation’s capital and learn about rural broadband.  They are encouraged to share their community’s story with key legislative, regulatory, and government figures and interact with their peers from other rural communities.  Applying is easy; just click the link below for the application. Applications are due Friday, February 17th.  The two winning students will be chosen from the applications and an interview process. Students must be aged 15, 16, or 17 at the time of the youth tour and have some form of Ben Lomand Connect service in their household of residence.
