In June, more than 1,300 high school students from around the country spend a week in Washington D.C. as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Youth Tour. While in the nation’s capital, students learn about American history, our nation’s government, and the role electric cooperatives play in communities across the country. Students also get the chance to enjoy historical sites and visit with their state representatives in the House and Senate.
Each year, the WREA sponsors three Wyoming students to attend, and local cooperatives have the opportunity to sponsor additional students.
