High school juniors have a chance to join other Indiana youth on a trip of a lifetime this summer.  The trip begins on June 8 in Indianapolis and ends on June 15.  According to David Lett CEO of Harrison REMC, the Indiana delegation will include over 75 students from across the state, each selected by his/her local cooperative.  Hoosier students will travel to Washington, D.C. where they will join nearly 1,600 students – representing 44 states – for the Rural Electric Youth Tour Rally, sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)  Harrison REMC is pleased to be able to provide this opportunity for local students,” CEO Lett said.  “It’s a great trip and a wonderful chance to see the sights, make new friends and learn how everyone, even young people, can be a leader and make a difference in his/her community – and the world!”

Indiana’s electric cooperatives have hosted the Youth Tour since 1960, providing hundreds of young Hoosiers the opportunity to visit our nation’s capital and learn about the federal government and the cooperative utility industry.  

Applications must be received in the REMC office by February 24, 2017 to be considered.
