Youth Tour has been bringing high school students to Washington, D.C. for over 60 years. On the tour students learn about electric cooperatives, American history and U.S. government, and walk away with a greater understanding of their role as an American citizen. They participate in National Youth Day, visit with their representatives and senators, and explore the sights around the nation's capital. In Iowa, students apply for slots from their electric cooperative. High school sophomores, juniors or seniors with a passion for government and public service are encouraged to apply. Approximately 40 high school students are chosen by local electric cooperatives from across the state of Iowa. The Iowa students join with approximately 1,800 other students from co-ops around the country for the national Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. in June. Giving back to the community and investing in the next generation of leaders is part of every electric cooperatives mission. This year's Youth Tour dates are June 18-23.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?
ANY high school sophomore, junior or senior that lives in SIEC's service territory. Students DO NOT have to be on SIEC's lines!
