Franklin REC will select one student from its service area to participate in the all-expense paid Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. set for June 18-23, 2023, with orientation the night of June 17 in Des Moines!

Eligible students must be a high school sophomore or junior living in the Hampton-Dumont-CAL, West Fork, or AGWSR school districts. If the student attends another school, his or her parent or guardian must be an active member of Franklin REC.

Attendees will visit national landmarks, meet with members of our Congressional delegation, learn about the cooperative difference, and develop new friendships.

Approximately 40 high school students are chosen by electric cooperatives across Iowa to attend, joining more than 1,800 students form electric cooperatives across the nation.

Read about the Youth Tour and fill out an application. Deadline to apply is Monday, Feb. 27, 2023. Testing and interviews will be held at the Franklin REC office on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, at 2:00 p.m.
