Power of Community - Pedernales Electric Cooperative

2014 Youth Tour Contest

For the 32nd 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 2014 Youth Tour Contest and in honor of our 75th anniversary, we asked area high school students to write essays from the perspective of someone 75 years ago, when electricity first illuminated the rural Hill Country.

The winners of PEC's 2014 Youth Tour Contest were honored at a reception at the LBJ Presidential Library.
