Grayson Rural Electric offers high school juniors the opportunity to visit Frankfort, Kentucky and Washington D.C. to learn about our country's history. The 2017 Frankfort Youth Tour will be held Thursday, April 13, and the Washington Youth Tour is June 9-16. Two students that participate in the Frankfort Youth Tour will be chosen for the Washington D.C. trip.
The Washington Youth Tour is an annual week-long event in June. During that time more than 1,000 high school juniors from across the country travel to Washington DC to learn more about government, cooperatives, and electrification.
During the Washington Youth Tour, delegates will get the opportunity to meet youth from across the country, interact with cooperative and government officials, and visit historic landmarks.
The purpose of the tours is to provide outstanding young people with the opportunity to better understand the value of electricity and how government works and to become more familiar with the historical and political background of the United States.
The application process is open to any high school junior, whose primary residence is in Grayson RECC's service territory. Applications are due March 3, 2017. Applications can be found with your high school guidance counselor or from this site.
Please contact Julie Lewis at (606) 475-2191, (800) 562-3532, or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Applications should be received at the Co-op by March 3, 2017.
