Each year Verendrye Electric sends one student on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to learn about our country's history and how our federal government operates.
To select a student we hold an essay contest with a different question each year. Students must be sophomores or juniors in high school at the time they enter the contest. This ensures the student is still in high school when they go on the trip in the summer. The entrant must also have a parent or guardian who is served by Verendrye Electric.
If chosen as a Youth Tour delegate, you will be traveling to Washington, D.C. to experience and learn about America's rich history. What moment in American history do you wish you had been a part of and what would you have contributed?
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to Verendrye Electric Cooperative c/o Youth Tour Contest, 615 Highway 52 West, Velva, ND 58790
