Beltrami Electric has selected Cass Lake-‐Bena High School’s Jasmine Jones as the co-operative’s representative for the 2012 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, where she will join hundreds of high school students representing their cooperatives on an allexpense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 15-‐22 2012. This journey is a part of an annual Youth Tour sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the Minnesota Rural Electric Association and Beltrami Electric Cooperative.
