Youth Tour - Apply TODAY!

The Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives Youth Tour is an annual leadership program sponsored by URE. It’s a weeklong, all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., that gives exceptional high school students the opportunity to meet with their congressional leaders at the U.S. Capitol, make new friends from across the state and country, and see many of the famous Washington sights.

Electric cooperatives from 43 states will send about 1,600 students June 8-14, 2018, for the annual tour. Will your child be one of them?
