For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives have sponsored the annual Rural Electric Youth Tour by selecting high school students (ages 16-18) for a trip to Washington, D.C. to experience, first hand, the essence that is our republic. We combine leadership with just plain fun and history with the opportunity to speak with those in office who are making the laws that affect us right now. We spend a day on Capitol Hill visiting with our Senators and Representatives. You will witness the profound grandeur of monuments to our greatest leaders; reflect on the true cost of freedom by eyeing row upon row of white crosses at Arlington Cemetery; experience what life was like on George Washington’s beloved Mount Vernon plantation, and unlock your individual spirit.
