The week-long trip included a visit to the Capitol and other areas of historical significance. The students were awarded the tour in a scholastic competition sponsored by Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative of Wellington. The high school students joined approximately 1,600 other rural students representing 42 states. As part of their tour, students met with members of their Congressional delegation, visited Arlington National Cemetery, and attended a performance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
