Government-in-Action Youth Tour
Each year, BTU proudly sends some of the area’s best students to Washington D.C., to represent our community. The participants are selected each year based on the results of an essay contest.

The action packed week takes the students to such sites as the Smithsonian Museums, Washington and Lincoln Memorials, Arlington National Cemetery, the Supreme Court, and many others. While in Washington D.C., the students will also get to speak to their congressman.
