Win a free trip to D.C. courtesy of MiEnergy Cooperative

Local high school sophomores and juniors have until March 1 to enter a contest to win an all-expense trip to Washington, D.C., to attend the 2024 Rural Electric Youth Tour in mid-June, courtesy of MiEnergy Cooperative.

Two students, one from Iowa and one from Minnesota, will be selected from eligible candidates. Each state’s Youth Tour group will join hundreds of students from across the country as they learn more about electric cooperatives and American history. Students learn about the U.S. government and meet with their members of Congress. On the trip, students take in the sights of D.C. as they visit monuments, museums and historical landmarks. It is a great leadership opportunity for students who have a passion for government and public service or simply want to travel and experience something new.

The contest is open to children of MiEnergy members. Students must be high school sophomores or juniors. The trip date is June 15-21 for Iowa students and June 18-23 for Minnesota students. Students can apply online at www.MiEnergy.coop/youthtour.

For over 65 years, locally-owned electric cooperatives have been sending students to Washington, D.C.
