Every year electric cooperatives in Missouri sponsor essay contests to select delegates to the annual Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. These high school students represent their local cooperative on a tour of the nation’s capital. They tour museums, visit America’s most cherished monuments and meet their elected officials. During the entire trip, they are learning about electric cooperatives and their role in the community. If you are a high school junior, you may qualify to participate in the Youth Tour Program.
For students to be eligible, their parents or legal guardians must be current members of CMEC and maintain full-time residency within the cooperative’s service area.
To be considered as a delegate, submit your application to the cooperative.
