Indiana’s electric cooperatives are accepting applications from Indiana high school juniors (fall 2023 seniors) for the 2023 Indiana Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.
The Indiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., provides young adults with the opportunity to travel to our nation’s capital to learn more about how government functions and the complexities of today’s electric utility industry, and to meet peers from around the country.
The trip is June 11-18, 2023. This is an all-inclusive trip including travel, meals, lodging and activities. Students selected for the trip will have the chance to compete for college scholarship opportunities by applying for the Youth Leadership Council.
Students will be selected for the trip based on applications they submit to their electric cooperative. All applicants must be sponsored by an electric cooperative and have completed their junior year in high school at the time of the trip. Home-schooled students are eligible to apply. Individual electric cooperatives may have specific requirements; please check with them for the full list of criteria.
Trip highlights include a visit to Gettysburg, Washington monument and museum tours, meetings on Capitol Hill with Indiana’s congressional delegation, the opportunity to make lifelong friends and much more. This really is the trip of a lifetime!
Online applications available December 5, 2022. Deadline to apply is March 1, 2023.
