Since 1963, more than 13,000 high school juniors and seniors have attended the annual Texas Farm Bureau Youth Leadership Conference (formerly known as the Citizenship Seminar) each summer.

The purpose of the training school is to give selected high school students in Texas a better understanding of the various forms of government and their responsibilities as citizens. Comparisons of the different kinds of economic systems are outlined.

Students are selected by county Farm Bureaus with the cooperation of local school officials. Transportation, rooms, meals and a small tuition fee are financed by the sponsoring county Farm Bureaus, sometimes with cooperation of local service clubs.

The conference runs three full days and includes lectures, discussions, and films by outstanding authorities in government, history, and economics. Recreation is also provided.

Students are encouraged to meet with school and civic groups upon their return home to share the information and knowledge they have received.

Students may also participate in the Free Enterprise Speech Contest, in which scholarships are awarded.
