Youth Tour Essay Contest

More than 1,500 students from across America take part in the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour experience each year, and so can you! DEMCO sponsors four high school juniors to attend on the all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. You'll get to tour the capital, meet with your congressman, visit historical sites, memorials and monuments, see your government working, and make lots of new friends from all around the country. To qualify, enter an essay in DEMCO’s 2020 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour Essay contest by January 24, 2020.

Throughout the submission and award process there are many learning opportunities for participating students to gain a better understanding of the functionality of electrical cooperatives as well as insight into how their national government operates.
