High school juniors: Compete to Win a Trip to Our Nation's Capitol!
Boone Electric Cooperative wants to send four students to Washington, D.C.
What is Youth Tour?
More than 90 Missouri high school juniors join 1,500 students from 44 other states on the trip of a lifetime to Washington, D.C., every summer. Students attend a premiere youth leadership conference sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Highlights of the conference include breakout sessions on youth leadership, discussions on community issues and solutions, and motivational speeches by today's recognized leaders. You have the chance to meet your senators and representatives, too!
