Cobb EMC is now accepting applications for the 2013 Washington Youth Tour, an all-expenses paid, weeklong trip to Washington, D.C., scheduled for June 13–20. Three high school juniors will be selected to meet their elected representatives and learn about U.S. history, government and careers in public service.
To apply, high school juniors who live or attend schools within Cobb EMC’s service area must submit a completed application by Thursday, March 7. Once received, the co-op will send study materials covering the cooperative, energy conservation and electric safety for a first-round quiz, which will be held Tuesday, March 12. The top-scoring finalist from each school will interview on March 21 with the Cobb EMC Women’s Task Force, a group of 90 volunteer members who raise money for student scholarships.
In addition to the trip, winners will also receive scholarships of $1,500, $1,000 or $500 and eligibility to interview for the company’s summer internship.
