Washington Youth Tour
Kentucky Rural Electric Washington Youth Tour is an annual week-long, all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., where 6 high school students from our service districts will meet students from across Kentucky as well as 45 other states.
In mid-April students spent one day in Kentucky’s capital, learning about their state government, touring the capital and meeting with elected officials.
The 2014 Washington Youth Tour dates are June 13-20. While in Washington, D.C., students will visit many of our nation’s memorials, the U.S. Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery and meet with Kentucky’s national representatives in Congress.
The Washington Youth Tour is sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives (KAEC), and 22 of Kentucky’s 24 electric distribution cooperatives.
