If so, tell them about the 2020 Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. Rock Energy Cooperative will sponsor up to four high school juniors on the June 19-26 trip.
They will join about 1,800 students from co-ops across the nation as they meet with congressional representatives, tour historic sites, and learn about the cooperative business model.
Applicants must be children of Rock Energy members and reside in the co-op’s service territory.
The all-expense-paid trip includes transportation, lodging, meals, and admission fees to all events. Round-trip travel is by motor coach from Springfield, Ill. Travel to Springfield is not included.
