Each year more than 1,800 exceptional high school students from across the country visit Washington D.C. through the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. During their trip, students meet federal elected officials, participate in networking events, learn about our nation’s history, the cooperative business model, and the importance of civic engagement. In 2020, BEMC will send two high school students on the Youth Tour, one from Brunswick County and one from the Columbus County area.
The 2020 Youth Tour dates are June 20-26. Rising high school juniors and seniors with a minimum GPA of 3.0 are encouraged to apply.
