2015 Youth Tour Contest

For the 33rd year, Pedernales Electric joined other electric cooperatives across the country to participate in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Youth Tour program. For PEC's 2015 Youth Tour Contest, we asked area high school students to write essays detailing how they would develop their own school community service project.

This year's winners, pictured above, will participate in an expense-paid June 2015 trip to Washington, D.C., to tour historical sites and meet local political representatives.
