In addition to being a lot of fun, the Rural Electric Youth Tour is an excellent leadership opportunity for any young man or young woman.
Rural Electric Youth Tour is open only to High School Juniors in the Choctaw Electric Cooperative service area. Presentations are usually due mid to late February and students will travel to Washington DC the following Summer.
The winners will be selected to attend the Rural Electric Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.
All winners should plan to attend the Choctaw Electric Annual membership meeting in Hugo, OK.
Winners are also required to attend the first CEC Board of Directors meeting after returning from Youth Tour, at the CEC office in Hugo, to personally thank the board and to share their Youth Tour experience.
