May is National Electrical Safety Month. To celebrate, use the checklist below to inspect your home’s electrical system to keep your family safe all year long.
High school students can win an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 13-22, 2021, sponsored by Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU).
The Government-in-Action Youth Tour is a youth leadership program sponsored by BTU and organized by Texas Electric Cooperatives and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. For more than 50 years, electric utilities across the country have been sending young adults to the nation’s capital for an action-packed tour.
Highlights of the trip include meeting congressional leaders, visiting national monuments and historic sites, touring Smithsonian Institution museums, going on a boat cruise on the Potomac River and seeing a show at the Kennedy Center. Precautions are being taken regarding the possibility of the ongoing pandemic including reduced group sizes, a chartered flight and provisions for masks to be worn.
To win what has been called the trip of a lifetime, apply now for the contest. To apply, submit an application and essay to be judged independently through BTU. This year’s contest topic is an essay discussing sources of energy generation and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Eligible entrants must:
- Be a high school sophomore, junior, or senior.
- Be a dependent of a BTU customer with permanent resident status in the service area, or attend a school served by BTU.
Applications must arrive by February 5, 2021, and can be submitted online.
