Three Rivers Electric Cooperative participates in the Rural Electric Youth Tour, an essay contest for high school juniors. Six TREC delegates are awarded a week-long, all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. where they learn more about government and visit the Capitol and the country's many great monuments.
Each essay is judged by three personnel from neighboring cooperatives. The students with the top 12 scores will compete in the final judging where they will take a quiz on cooperative knowledge and read their essay before a panel of judges. Based on their final scores at the Youth Tour competition, six students will be selected to attend the 2023 Youth Tour trip. The remaining six finalists will each receive a $200 gift card.
