Beltrami Electric Now Accepting Youth Tour Applications


January 9, 2019

Students from Minnesota Electric Cooperatives visit the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. during the 2018 Rural Electric Youth Tour.

Beltrami Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for the 2019 Youth Tour, an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 15-20, 2019. Each year the cooperative sponsors one high school junior (will be a senior in the fall of 2019) whose parent or guardian is a member of Beltrami Electric Cooperative.

Students on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour will have the opportunity to meet with elected representatives in the U.S. House and Senate, discuss the process of government and increase their overall knowledge of electric cooperatives and U.S. history. They will also spend time touring several historic sites in Washington, D.C. Students have said that the Youth Tour was the best week of their entire summer!

To qualify, candidates must submit an application, write a 500-word essay from a list of selected topics, and submit two letters of reference from teachers, group or community leaders and have a parent or guardian who is a member of Beltrami Electric Cooperative.

Applications must be received by Friday, February 1, 2019, and are available at your high school counselor's office, at Beltrami Electric's office or or via download at BEC's website. Students may contact Angela Lyseng at 444-3689 for more information.
