Each year 38 electric cooperatives in Missouri sponsor essay contests to select delegates in their service territory to attend the annual Youth Tour in Washington, D.C.! These fortunate high school students represent their local cooperative on a whirlwind tour of the nation's capital. They tour museums, visit America's most cherished monuments and even meet their elected officials. All the while they are learning about electric cooperatives, their role in the community and making friends from around the country. Did we mention this weeklong trip is free?
