Youth Tour

Students sought for Washington, D.C. Youth Tour

Itasca-Mantrap Cooperative is sponsoring one area high school student to attend the annual Youth Tour held June 9-14, 2018 in Washington, D.C. The contest is open to sophomores and juniors who live in the Itasca-Mantrap service area.  

The winner of this once-in-a-lifetime trip will join hundreds of youth from across the United States in Washington, D.C. to learn more about our nation’s history, see American government in action and tour famous historical monuments. Students will also get a chance to meet and ask questions of their legislators and learn more about the importance of electric cooperatives. Those who attended this tour in the past said it was an experience of a lifetime and one of the best things they ever did.

To be eligible for a chance to win this all-expense-paid trip, students must complete an application that includes three short-answer questions. Based on responses to the application, qualifying students will be asked to participate in an interview with a panel of judges. The judges will choose one applicant to represent Itasca-Mantrap in Washington, D.C.

Applications are available to download below, at the Itasca-Mantrap office, or from a high school counselor. For more information contact Itasca-Mantrap at 218-732-3377. The deadline to enter is March 16.
