2018 Cooperative Youth Tour

Every year, Craighead Electric chooses two deserving local Juniors to act as representatives in the Electric Cooperative youth tour to Washington D.C.

The trip, sponsored by the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas, includes a guided tour of the U. S. Capitol, as well as tours of all the major sites in Washington, such as Mount Vernon, George 
Washington’s home; the museums of the Smithsonian Institution; the Newseum; and the Jefferson, Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., Vietnam, Korean and World War II memorials. This spring, Craighead 
Electric Cooperative will select two high school juniors to attend the 2018 tour, which is set for June 8-14. The winners will be selected through an essay contest and an interview. 
Applicants must be high school juniors and their parents/ guardians must be members of Craighead Electric Cooperative.

The Arkansas group will travel to Washington by a chartered motor-coach and return to Little Rock by air. Once in Washington, the students will join about 1,500 students from across the nation who 
are attending the tour. Why do we do this? The answer is simple. Craighead Electric Cooperative is committed to its members and to the communities it serves. Through the Youth Tour, we are helping
Arkansas’ youth learn more about the workings of their nation’s government and the electric cooperatives, as well as develop leadership skills.

If you know a high school junior, who’s parents are members of Craighead Electric, encourage them to apply for this all-expense-paid tour of our nation’s capital. For more information, contact Jon Carmack
