What is the Rural Electric Cooperatives Youth Tour to Washington D.C?
Every June, as many as 1,500 high school students from across the country spend a week in the nation's capital as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives – cooperatives that are committed to educating America's rural youth about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities. The trip features visits to the Flight 93 Memorial, the Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian museums, the National Mall memorials and much more.
The Indiana Youth Tour delegation will meet in Indianapolis Thursday, June 13, 2019 and will return to the headquarters of Indiana Electric Cooperatives Thursday, June 20, 2019.
Deadline to apply is Feb. 15, 2019. Visit the Indiana's Electric Cooperatives website to submit your application online.
