Youth Programs

If you're a high school junior, you could be selected for one of these two unforgettable experiences.

On the Washington Youth Tour, explore Washington, D.C. with 1,500 high school juniors from across the country, meeting lawmakers and touring all the sights. Newberry Electric Co-op will cover your round-trip plane ticket, tours and meals. In other words, It’s all free!

On the Cooperative Youth Summit, experience South Carolina’s capital like never before. Tour the State House, meet lawmakers and see how co-ops are preparing for our state’s energy future. Plus, there’s plenty of fun with visits to popular Columbia attractions like Riverbanks Zoo & Garden and the Robert Mills House and Gardens.

Newberry Electric Cooperative selects three area high school juniors each year to participate as delegates in each program.  Simply fill out the forms below to be considered for both trips!   

Deadline for applications is Friday, February 1, 2019.
