Youth Tour

High school juniors explore the nation’s capital on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. Approximately 1,500 students from across the U.S. gather each June to learn more about government and electric cooperatives and tour historic sights and museums, including the Newseum, Smithsonian Institution, World War II Memorial and Mount Vernon.
Congratulations to the following students on being chosen by First Electric for the 2017 Youth Tour!
  • Decatur Austin of Benton
  • Tehya Hinkson of Benton
  • Britney McGloflin of Austin
  • Jared McPeake of Benton

Applications for the 2018 Youth Tour will be available here and at First Electric offices on Feb. 1. Any junior whose parents or guardians are members of First Electric may submit a Youth Tour application. Winners are selected based on information supplied on the applications and personal interviews.
