Youth Tour Front
"The trip of a lifetime"
Every year electric cooperatives in Missouri sponsor essay contests to select delegates to the annual Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. These fortunate high school students represent their local cooperative on a whirlwind tour of the nation's capital. They tour museums, visit America's most cherished monuments and even meet their elected officials. All the while they are learning about electric cooperatives and their role in the community.
If you are a high school junior, you may be eligible to participate in the Youth Tour program. Check our map of participating systems to see if a co-op in your area sponsors delegates. For more information, check out National Rural Electric Cooperative Association's Youth Tour site.
