Each summer, our high school delegates join 1,500 students from electric cooperatives across the country on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., to:
- Tour historical sites, including Arlington National Cemetery, Capitol Hill, the Lincoln Memorial, Mount Vernon, the Smithsonian Institution, the U.S. Supreme Court, the Washington National Cathedral, and more.
- Meet local political representatives, and learn more about our local and national government.
- Create lifelong friendships with students from all around the country!
The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association has canceled Youth Tour 2021 due to COVID-19. More information about the 2022 competition will be made available at a later date.
