Youth Tour 2020
Indiana’s electric cooperatives sponsor an unforgettable educational adventure to Gettysburg and Washington, D.C., for high school seniors-to-be. This 7-day trip includes visits with Indiana’s congressional leaders on Capitol Hill and a rally with over 1,800 student delegates from across the country.
Jay County REMC will sponsor students on the annual Indiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. The 2020 Indiana Youth Tour is June 18-25.
Students entering their senior year in 2020 are eligible to attend and are selected by their local cooperative to participate in the weeklong trip. Indiana will send a delegation of approximately 100 students from throughout the state. The students travel to Washington and convene with more than 1,800 students from up to 46 states.
“Jay County REMC is pleased to provide this opportunity for our local youth,” Mark Arnold, CEO said. “It’s a great trip and a wonderful chance to see the sites, make new friends and learn how everyone, even young people, can make a difference in the political process.”
Applications for Youth Tour are available by contacting Cindy Denney at the Jay County REMC, (800) 835-7362 or [email protected]. Applications are due March 2, 2020.
Students participating in the trip will visit the Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian museums, tour the Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorials, take a night cruise on the Potomac River, and much more.
The Indiana Youth Tour students will also participate in a youth rally hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and spend a day on Capitol Hill, where they will have an opportunity to meet with Indiana’s congressional delegation to ask questions and share their thoughts on a variety of timely issues.
