An area teenager will experience firsthand the pride of being an American by winning a free trip to Washington, D.C. June 14-19, 2022. Federated Rural Electric, Jackson, will select the winner of this trip through its annual Youth Tour Contest.
High school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, attending a high school in Federated’s service area can enter. Pick up an application from the school counselor or find one on Federated’s website (www.federatedrea.coop). The student writes a 300-word essay on an energy-related topic, which is due with the application by Feb. 4. The first 15 students to enter receive $20 gift certificates to Amazon.com.
Five finalists are selected for short interviews March 22. The combined scores from the essay, interview and application determine the trip winner, along with second and third place who receive $150 and $100, respectively.
The winner will travel with 40 other Minnesota teens sponsored by other rural electric co-ops.
