Youth Tour

Be part of the nearly 1,500 high school students from across the nation for a fun-filled week in Washington. Every year Consolidated Electric Cooperative sponsors two students on a supervised, all-expense-paid trip to Washington, DC. The electric cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, DC, every June since the late 1950s.

While on tour, you can visit:

Gettysburg, WWII Memorial, The Smithsonian, Vietnam Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, National Cathedral, Capitol Hill, Arlington National Cemetary and so much more.

How are finalists chosen?

The competition consists of reviewing a study booklet, completing a short take-home test and participating in an interview.
