Each year, EnergyUnited seeks high school applicants to participate in the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. The program is open to sophomores and juniors and will take students on a historic journey to learn about electric cooperatives, American history, and the United States government while visiting the remarkable sites of the nation’s capital. Our 2021 delegates took place in the activities virtually as a COVID-19 precaution, but that didn’t stop them from having a great time and making our co-op proud.
