Youth Tour


Youth TourHigh school sophomores and juniors whose parents are members of Prairie Energy Cooperative are invited to apply for the 2017 Youth Tour to Washington D.C. held June 9-15, 2017.  

Every June, as many as 1,500 high school students from across the country spend a week in the nation's capital as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives – cooperatives that are committed to educating America's rural youth about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities.

Participating in the Youth Tour is an awesome way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!

The deadline to request an application is March 10, 2017.  Contact Member Service Manager Don Kammrad for more information or call Prairie Energy at 888-225-8707.
