Local Students Recently Participated in the KY Rural Electric Washington Youth Tour

Twelve local high school seniors, including Russell County High School’s Skyla Lawless and Ashlyn Ing, recently joined 77 other Kentucky electric co-op students for a weeklong program where they learned about the political process, interacted with elected officials and gained an up-close understanding of American history.

The Kentucky Rural Electric Washington Youth tour is an annual, week-long, all expense-paid trip to Washington D.C., which is open to select high school juniors going into their senior year whose homes are served by electric cooperatives.

If your student is going to be a high school junior this year, they can apply for the 2019 Washington Rural Electric Youth Tour beginning in January. Applications are available at the guidance offices of high schools within the South Kentucky RECC service territory.
