The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour is a journey through history, a glimpse of government in action and peer fellowship at its finest.
East Central Energy offers this six-day, all-expense-paid educational trip to Washington, D.C. to high school juniors and seniors. The cooperative will sponsor two students on the tour June 10-15, 2017. To be eligible, their parent or guardian must be an ECE member.
Students on the Youth Tour will participate in leadership training, engage in one-on-one conversations with elected officials, jumpstart their national peer network and tour the nation’s capital.
ECE is currently accepting applications from students who would like to be considered for this year’s tour.
As part of the application process, students write an essay on a topic provided by ECE. Finalists will be interviewed by a panel of judges, and the top two students will each receive the trip to Washington, D.C.
Information on the tour is available at eastcentralenergy.com. Students may request an application packet by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 1-800-254-7944, ext. 2022.
Application materials must be completed and returned to ECE by Feb. 13, 2017.
