ATTENTION HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS
Win an expense paid week in Washington, D.C.
A week you'll never forget!
June 8-15, 2017
The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Washington, D.C., Youth Tour is June 8-15, 2017. High school students who are 16 by June 1 and whose families are Southeast Colorado Power Association members are eligible to apply to go on the trip. The tour provides students with an eight-day adventure that offers in-depth exposure to the electric cooperative network while exploring our nation's capitol. The selected youth's expenses, including airfare, lodging, meals and all tour admission fees, are paid by your local cooperative, Southeast Colorado Power. Activities during the trip include tours of the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, war memorials (Vietnam, Iwo Jima), Arlington National Cemetery, National Archives, the White House and Smithsonian Museums; a Potomac River dinner and dance cruise, visits with Colorado's U.S. senators and representatives; an NRECA Town Hall Meeting; and the chance to connect with students nationwide.
Southeast Colorado Power will sponsor one student to the 2017 Washington, D.C. camp. If you're not chosen to attend the Washington, D.C. trip, you may be the recipient of a trip to Clark, Colorado, located just outside Steamboat Springs. At this camp, held in July, students from Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wyoming will gather at a beautiful resort on the Elk River and spend the week at an outstanding leadership camp. You'll participate in activities to improve leadership skills and get an inside view of the state and national legislatures. There is plenty of time for swim parties, barbecues, dances and banquets during the week. Many of the attendees call this camp a "life-changing experience." Just print and complete the forms associated with this camp, or you can use the easy fill in the blank method. Be sure to sign where designated.
