Beltrami Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for the 2020 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 20-25, 2020. Each year the cooperative sponsors one high school junior whose parent or guardian is a member of Beltrami Electric Cooperative.
Students on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour will have the opportunity to meet with elected representatives in the U.S. House and Senate, discuss the process of government and increase their overall knowledge of electric cooperatives and U.S. history. They will also spend time touring several historic sites in Washington, D.C. Students have said that the Youth Tour was the best week of their entire summer!
To qualify, candidates must submit an application, write a 500-word essay, submit two letters of reference from teachers, group or community leaders and have a parent or guardian who is a member of Beltrami Electric Cooperative.
Applications must be received by Friday, January 31, 2020, and are available at your high school counselor’s office, at Beltrami Electric’s office or via download at BEC’s website.
