Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative will sponsor two students on the annual Indiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. The 2020 Indiana Youth Tour is June 18 through 25.
Students entering their senior year in 2020 are eligible to attend and are selected by their local cooperative to participate in the week-long trip. Indiana will send a delegation of approximately 100 students from throughout the state. The students travel to Washington and convene with more than 1,800 students from up to 46 states.
Applications for the youth tour are now available by going online to www.duboisrec.com. Applications are due Feb. 14. Students participating in the trip will visit the Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian museums, tour the Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorials, take a night cruise on the Potomac River, and much more.
The Indiana Youth Tour students also will participate in a youth rally hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and spend a day on Capitol Hill, where they will have an opportunity to meet with Indiana’s congressional delegation to ask questions and share their thoughts on a variety of timely issues.
