2021 Youth Tour
The 2021 Youth Tour trip will be replaced with a $2,000 scholarship award. The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) 2021 Youth Tour to Washington D.C. was canceled due to safety concerns regarding travel and the COVID-19 pandemic. The Lake Region Youth Tour contest for 2021 will still go on.
We will select five outstanding high school juniors from our local schools through a video speech contest. This contest is open to all students enrolled in a school (or homeschool) system located in one of the counties served by Lake Region Electric Cooperative.
Each finalist (3 winners) will receive a $2,000 Youth Tour scholarship after the contest is judged. Two others will win an opportunity to attend a Youth Leadership conference their senior year and receive a $500 scholarship.
