Rural Electric Youth To Washington Contest

Rural Electric Convenience Cooperative sponsors two high school juniors students for the popular week-long Youth To Washington tour June.  Last year it was held June 17-24, 2022.  Any junior attending a high school in RECC’s service area is eligible to win this all expense-paid program.

Last year the Youth Tour required each student attending to have a negative COVID test to board the bus on June 17th.  If a student was to exhibit any symptoms during their time on Youth Tour,  a chaperone administered a rapid test and determined the best course of action from there. They followed any masking mandates that were in place at that time.

The application included a summary of the student’s school and civic activities and accomplishments, as well as, a few essay questions.
