High School Juniors
High school juniors fill out an application including their contact information, community, school and work activities and a brief explanation of why they would make a good TCEC delegate. Ten finalists are selected for interviews.
- Three delegates are selected for the trip to Washington, D.C., June 19-25, 2020,
- Two delegates are selected for the trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, July 10-16, 2020
Eighth graders write a letter to their school’s principal naming specific actions the school should take to be more energy efficient. They submit the letter with the trip application to TCEC to apply for the trip. Four delegates are selected to attend YouthPower Energy Camp May 26-29, 2020.
TCEC pays transportation, lodging, meals and other incidental costs incurred with all trips. Students are responsible for souvenirs and any extra personal items they may need.
