Each year Tri-County Electric Cooperative sponsors several juniors from area high schools to attend the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour in Washington, DC.
The Youth Tour is more than an all expense paid trip to the nation’s capital to sight-see. It is a prestigious event in which thousands of high school juniors from across the nation join together to gain an understanding of our nation’s history and the freedoms we enjoy, as well as the many costs of those freedoms. The experience is rewarding, educational and fun! Students will tour memorials, museums and national landmarks that they may have only read about in history books.
We believe by investing in today’s youth, we are investing in our, and your, future. We know that some of the brightest and best students live right here in North Florida and we want to give them an opportunity to experience the past, present and future of our country. For many students, it will inspire a future in government or political science or your local cooperatives.We ask for support by informing eligible juniors in our community of this great opportunity.
