THOMPSON | Heartland Power Cooperative of Thompson/St. Ansgar recently announced its participation in the 2018 Iowa Rural Electric Youth Tour.
The Youth Tour is an opportunity for young people to learn firsthand about our nation’s government and rural electrification through an all-expense paid week in Washington, D.C. The participants will have an action-packed week of touring historic sites, meeting congressional leaders, spending a day on Capitol Hill, exploring the Smithsonian museums, taking a cruise on the Potomac River and making new friends from Iowa and across the nation.
The dates for this year’s Youth Tour are June 8-15, 2018. Heartland Power will be sending two students this year.
All students of Heartland Power members who are presently sophomores or juniors in high school are eligible to participate.
Youth Tour applications can be found on the website and must be returned to Heartland Power Cooperative no later than March 15, 2018.
