Midland Power Cooperative is looking for one lucky high school sophomore or junior to send on an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. this summer.
For more than 60 years, electric cooperatives like Midland Power have proudly sponsored students to attend the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, bringing high school students from across the nation together in the capital to learn more about electric cooperatives, American history, U.S. government, and to meet with their members of Congress.
Midland Power will select one student to join 40 other students from around Iowa - along with hundreds of students from across the country – on the week-long trip. Previous winners have called it the “trip of a lifetime” and reported that it was a life-changing experience.
This year’s tour will take place June 17-23, 2023. All current high school sophomores and juniors attending school in or near Midland Power’s service territory are eligible to apply. Additional information and an online application can be found at MidlandPower.coop/YouthTour. All completed Youth Tour applications must be received by Friday, March 10, 2023.
