Youth Tour

The Youth Tour Experience! June 9-15

What is Youth Tour?
Youth Tour is an annual leadership program sponsored by Logan County Electric Cooperative. It’s a week long, all-expenses-paid (everything except souvenirs!) trip to Washington, D.C., that gives exceptional high school students the opportunity to meet with their congressional leaders at the U.S. Capitol, make new friends from across the state and country, and see many of the famous Washington sights.
Electric cooperatives from 43 states will send about 1,600 students this year for the annual tour. Will you be one of them?

To apply for the Youth Tour...
Successful applicants:
• must be a high school sophomore or junior.
• must be a son, daughter, or legal ward of a LCEC member living on the cooperative’s lines and receiving electric service from the cooperative at the time of selection.
• must also submit a letter of recommendation from a guidance counselor, principal, teacher, or community or organization advisor.
Applicants will be required to be interviewed by LCEC staff.
Application deadline is March 1, 2017. Call the office for more details, 937-592-4781

 
What are electric co-ops and why do they sponsor Youth Tour and the YLC?
Rural Electric Cooperatives were created in the 1930s when President Franklin D. Roosevelt founded the Rural Electrification Administration. Thanks to the Rural Electrification Act, those brave farmers and ranchers took it upon themselves to create their own member-owned utilities called cooperatives. This can-do spirit combined with the mission of giving back to the community is why electric cooperatives sponsor high school juniors and seniors on a weeklong, expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
