2018 SIEC Youth Tour Winners!
The 2018 Iowa Rural Electric Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. trip winners were selected from contest interviews held in March at Southern Iowa Electric Cooperative’s office in Bloomfield. Students were scored for their knowledge on rural electric cooperative history, ambitions, speaking ability, appearance and poise/personality. This year’s contest winners are Courtney Merrill and Abby Rotole! Courtney is a junior at Van Buren County Community Schools. She is the daughter of Charles and Jennifer Livesay of Keosauqua. Abby is a junior at Davis County Community Schools. She is the daughter of Dave and Jennifer Rotole of Bloomfield. Courtney and Abby will receive an all expense paid trip to our nation’s capital along with 40 other students from across Iowa. They will have an opportunity to visit with Iowa’s senators and representatives, spend a day on Capital Hill, explore the Smithsonian museums, take a cruise on the Potomac River and make new friends from Iowa and across the nation. Congratulations girls, we can’t wait to hear all about your adventures at our Annual Meeting in September!
