Electric Cooperative Youth Tour
Each year, Ozarks Electric Cooperative sends four high school juniors on an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. These students join 1,400 other juniors, also sent from cooperatives across the country to learn about our nation's government, our nation's history and their place in our nation's future. Students are selected through an essay and interview process.
Students may contact their high school guidance counselors for information about Youth Tour. Each student will write an essay on a topic provided by Ozarks Electric. The essay must be submitted by the deadline to be eligible.
After the essays are judged, finalists will be selected to be interviewed. Winners from Arkansas and Oklahoma are selected to attend the trip that takes place in June each summer.
