More than 1,500 students from across America take part in the Rural Electric Youth Tour experience each year, and so can you! DEMCO sponsors four high school juniors to attend an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
You'll get to tour the capital, meet with your congressman, visit historical sites, memorials and monuments, see your government working, and make lots of new friends from all around the country.
To qualify, enter the DEMCO 2021 Youth Tour Essay contest by January 22, 2021.
Throughout the submission and award process, there are many learning opportunities for participating students to gain a better understanding of the functionality of electrical cooperatives as well as insight into how their national government operates.
