2016 Youth Tour Contest
For the 34th year, Pedernales Electric is joining other electric cooperatives across the country to participate in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Youth Tour program. For PEC's 2016 Youth Tour Contest, we are asking area high school students to write essays featuring a person, entity or event they think should be memorialized with a monument to mark the importance of rural electrification.
Ten semifinalists will be chosen to interview with three independent judges who will select the final six winners of an expense-paid June 2016 trip to Washington, D.C., to tour historical sites and meet local political representatives.
Please read our contest guidelines before submitting your essay and application online. The deadline to enter is Wednesday, Oct. 21.
