Youth Tour

Wiregrass Electric Cooperative is proud to once again provide a local version of the Youth Tour program to area high school juniors! This year’s program will occur on April 11, 2022, and feature many of the same events the 2021 tour did.

Events include:

  • Educational presentations: Delegates will learn about the nation’s history and the role electric cooperatives have played in it. 
  • Learning from lawmakers: Local legislators will discuss governmental operations with delegates and answer their questions.
  • Leadership development: Participants will encounter team-building activities and learn leadership skills throughout the day.
  • Networking: Attendees will come from a variety of schools, presenting chances to make new friends. 

All events will take place at WEC’s headquarters in Hartford on April 11.

An investment in the future

In addition to these great experiences, all 10 delegates will reap another benefit in 2022: a $1,500 scholarship courtesy of WEC!

Applications for the local Youth Tour are available below and at local WEC offices. Applicants must be high school juniors who are dependents of WEC members. 

The deadline to apply is Feb. 28.
