Washington Youth Tour
Two students entering the best 500-word essays will win an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. June 8-15, 2017. Please choose one of the following topics:
- What are electric cooperatives? How do they help communities?
- Electricity is taken for granted, yet it was considered a luxury 75 years ago. Discuss the myriad ways power impacts your daily life.
- Georgia’s EMCs began offering green power to members in 2003. What is it, and how will it affect us in the future?
Entries will be judged on subject knowledge, originality and grammar. Participating students will receive a free Washington Youth Tour t-shirt.
The deadline for turning in essays will be noon on March 3. I will gladly pick them up from your school—just let me know when they are ready.
*Winning students and parents will be required to sign TOUR COMMITMENT and authorization forms. Please do not enter if scheduling conflicts (e.g. internships, summer camps or the Governor’s Honors program) may arise. If selected, any participant who fails to fulfill his or her obligation to the Washington Youth Tour and Coweta-Fayette EMC (barring sickness or family emergency) may be subject to trip cost reimbursement.
Info kits are available through Amy Lott: 770-252-7446 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be in the 10th/11th grade to enter and 16 years old before June 8.
