Youth Tour Scholarship
Beyond just an academic scholarship, the Youth Tour is also a unique opportunity for high school juniors to gain insight into our state and national governments, along with an understanding of the history and significance of rural electrification. Every year, we choose several students from high schools in the county to travel to Montgomery and Washington D.C. There, our participants join students from all across the state and country to learn more about electric cooperatives, meet government dignitaries, explore historical sites and monuments, make new friends and acquaintances and have fun doing it.
