North Arkansas Electric Cooperative will send four high school juniors to the nation’s capital on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour this summer. The all-expense-paid trip will be held June 9-15 and will include tours of major sites in and around Washington, D.C., including the U.S. Capitol; the museums of the Smithsonian Institution; the Newseum; and the Jefferson, Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Vietnam, Korean and World War II memorials.
The Youth Tour is sponsored by the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas and will include teenagers from each co-op in the state. The group will travel to Washington and return to Little Rock by air. Once in Washington, the students will join approximately 1,700 others from across the country. They will learn about our government and electric cooperatives while improving their leadership skills.
Applicants must be high school juniors and their parents or guardians must be NAEC members. Applications were due March 15, 2017. The winners now will be selected based on information provided on the applications and interviews. Contact Tori Moss at 870-895-6210 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
