Area junior and senior high school students have until February 21st to take part in a contest to win an all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C. to attend the 2014 Rural Electric Youth Tour June 13th through the 19th.
The trip, courtesy of Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC), includes tours of several historic monuments and museums, visits with Minnesota's political leaders, and the chance to learn more about electric cooperatives on a local, state and national level.
The contest is open to high school juniors or seniors who attend high schools in Winona, Houston and Fillmore counties and those in Olmsted County that are in TEC's territory. Home schoolers who live within the cooperative's service territory are also eligible.
To enter the contest, students must complete the Youth Tour exam online at www.tec.coop.
The exam portion consists of 25 questions regarding electric cooperatives, plus four short essay questions. All answers to the questions can be found within TEC's website.
