Every June, as many as 1,800 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 (link is external). 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.
Participating in the Youth Tour is an awesome way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!
Each year, Allamakee-Clayton Electric Cooperative selects two high school sophomores or juniors to represent the Co-op on Youth Tour. If selected, you will join hundreds of other students from across the country - all expenses paid - for an incredible week in our nation's capital.
