2014 Indiana Electric Cooperative
Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.
Applications are now available!
Join over 1,500 students from around the country for the trip of a lifetime June 12-19, 2014.
Students will learn about our nation's legislative process through activities that include participating in a Youth Tour Rally where they will share thoughts and opinions on a variety of timely legislative issues. They will also visit with representatives of Indiana's Congressional delegation on Capitol Hill and participate in a simulation designed to immerse the students in the high-pressure decision making world of a member of Congress. Students have the opportunity to compete for a $1,000 scholarship and a return trip to Washington, D.C. as a member of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association's (NRECA) Youth Leadership Council.
The Indiana delegation will experience our country's history firsthand with stops at the Gettysburg National Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, the Flight 93 and Pentagon 9/11 Memorials, the National Museum of the Marine Corp., the National Mall Memorials and the Smithsonian. Other notable events include the Newseum, a night cruise on the Potomac River and an All States Dance.
Indiana's electric cooperatives have hosted the Youth Tour since 1960.
