4 Rivers Electric Sending Three Students to Washington, D.C.
The Youth Tour program builds leadership, community, memories
If you are a member of 4 Rivers Electric, and your student is a junior in high school, we encourage them to apply to win an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 18-25, 2020.
The Kansas Electric Cooperative Youth Tour is truly a trip of a lifetime where students will join 1,800 youth from across the nation in our nation’s capital for a week, visiting with Kansas’ senators and congressional representatives. Students will visit the monuments and memorials at the National Mall, as well as tour Capitol Hill to learn more about how our government works, leadership and the co-op industry.
