Each February Washington Electric provides high-school seniors who are the son or daughter of co-op members with scholarship applications. The Cooperative awards five scholarships each year, and first-place winners have the opportunity to compete for additional awards at the statewide level. Applications become available at the beginning of January and may be downloaded from this website or in the guidance office at all area high schools.
Youth Tour Leadership Program
High-school sophomores and juniors may compete in March for two awards of a six-day all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. The students must be the children of a co-op member. On this trip, which takes place in June each year, students tour the Capitol and meet their Congressional representatives while enjoying many of the fascinating sights of our nation's capital city. Applications typically become available annually in February.
