ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE YOUTH TOUR
Attention: High School Juniors! This summer, go on a Power Trip! Beltrami Electric Cooperative will sponsor one student on an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 20-25, 2020. 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 forge friendships that will last a lifetime.
Beltrami Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for the 2020 Rural 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.
To qualify, students 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. Interested students may contact Angela Lyseng at (218) 444-2540 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
