Nominate Outstanding Students for the Lone Star Leadership Academy!
In addition to our Discover Texas Field Trips, Education in Action offers the Lone Star Leadership Academy during the summer for outstanding 4th-8th graders. Students participate on an individual basis and must be nominated by an educator in order to attend.
Your nominees will have the opportunity to join a delegation of distinguished students from across the state in Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin/San Antonio, or Houston/Galveston for a week of fun, learning, leadership development, and visits to unique and significant Texas sites. Participants develop leadership skills, gain insight into future career opportunities, develop friendships with other high-achieving students, and add to their resume of academic achievements.

"What a wonderful program. My son has never been so excited about learning. My son's week at the Dallas/Fort Worth program brought all his history lessons from school to life. He can't wait to go to Austin next summer."
