Pee Dee Electric is seeking applications for The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.

Pee Dee Electric is seeking applications from high school students willing to step out of their comfort
zone and “SAY YES” to the opportunity of a lifetime: The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.
 
The Youth Tour allows students to experience the nation’s capital like they never have before. Tourists
can expect to take part in adventures like laying a flag at the Vietnam War Memorial, visiting the
Washington Monument, meeting elected officials and touring Smithsonian museums, all while building
connections with peers and future leaders from across the nation.

Pee Dee Electric will sponsor up to two local students to join the 2019 Youth Tour. The all-expense paid, weeklong Tour is a 50-year tradition of electric cooperatives across the country. More than 1,800
students from over 40 states are expected to participate June 15-21, 2019 and North Carolina’s electric
cooperatives will send a delegation of nearly 45 students.

Co-op officials and past Tour participants agree: the Tour is the perfect way for the delegates to see
democracy up close and in action.

 The Youth Tour is an opportunity for remarkable students to have an eye-opening backstage
pass to our nation’s capital
 Youth Tour delegates will meet with members of North Carolina’s congressional delegation,
connect with a network of talented peers, and grow their leadership skills and ambitions.

Eligibility Requirements
 Students must be entering their Junior or Senior year in Fall of 2019
 Students must live in a home served by Pee Dee Electric
 Delegates will be selected based on their completed application, written essay, and an in-person
interview.
 Applications for Youth Tour are available by contacting Seth Allen at Pee Dee Electric, 704-694-
7604, or sallen@pdemc.com
