Deadline nears for Delaware Electric scholarship for Rural Electric Youth Tour


Delaware Electric Cooperative announced it will, once again, sponsor an all-expense paid trip for three high school juniors to attend the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour in Washington, DC.

This year’s Youth Tour is being held June 11th-16th, and will bring together more than 1,500 students representing 44 states. Participants will see all that Washington, DC has to offer while learning about the history of the United States and the electric co-op movement.

The event offers an opportunity for students to meet with Delaware’s Congressional Delegation on Capitol Hill and tour the city.

To participate in this program, students must be current high school juniors and their parent(s) or guardian(s) must receive their electric service from Delaware Electric Cooperative. Final selection for the Youth Tour will be made by a committee based upon an application and personal interview. The deadline to apply is March 10th.
