Summer 2021 may seem like a long time away as fall fades and winter approaches, but finding and selecting stellar delegates for youth trips takes time. We encourage all eligible youth to apply online now at www.tcec.coop/youth for the summer youth trips from TCEC.
All told, 11 delegates will be selected for the upcoming youth trips.
- Four eighth-graders will go to Energy Camp in Hinton, Oklahoma.
- Three high school juniors will go to Washington, D.C., as part of the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour.
- Two high school juniors will go to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, for the Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp.
- Two high school seniors will be selected to attend the Youth Leadership Summit in Oklahoma City and will receive a $500 scholarship, too.
If you know someone of the right age who attends school in the TCEC service territory, be sure to tell them about this unforgettable opportunity. Students will make friends that last a lifetime while learning new leadership skills.
TCEC pays transportation, lodging, meals and other incidental costs incurred with all trips. Students are responsible for souvenirs and extra personal items they may need during the trip.
Virtual tours of the trips as well as application details are online at www.tcec.coop/youth. Eighth-graders complete a short application and submit a letter to their principal explaining specific actions the school should take to be more energy efficient. High school juniors will submit a more detailed application. From there, independent judges will select 10 finalists for video interviews filmed by the cooperative. From those interviews, the judges will select five delegates. Seniors complete an online application for consideration by the judges for the Youth Leadership Summit.
Summer will be here before you know it. Don’t delay, enter today!
