The 2023 Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour

High school juniors can win a Free trip to Montgomery and Washington, D.C.!

Wiregrass Electric Cooperative (WEC) will send 10 students to the Montgomery Youth Tour which will take place March 14 through 16, and 2 of those students will go on to attend the Washington, D.C., Youth Tour held in June. If you’re a high school junior, and your parents or legal guardians are a member of WEC, you are eligible to attend.

Each student selected to participate in the Montgomery Youth Tour will receive a $1,000 scholarship. The two students who go on to attend the Washington Youth Tour will receive an additional $500 scholarship each.

An interview will determine which two students from the Montgomery Youth Tour to go on to attend the Washington tour.
