Considering the global pandemic, the 2020 and 2021 Youth Tour is canceled. Please check back in September 2021 for Youth Tour applications for 2022.
More than 1,500 high school students nationwide participate in the annual Electric Cooperative Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. The Youth Tour consists of a fast-paced, intense week of learning about history and government, visiting with the congressional delegation, becoming more knowledgeable about the cooperative business model, and touring museums, national monuments, and memorials. Considering the global pandemic, our 2020 Youth Tour winners were not able to attend the event, so we are allowing them to participate in the 2021 Youth Tour event. Let’s meet the students representing Cass County Electric Cooperative.
