We’re looking for up to two students to represent Midwest Energy & Communications (MEC) during the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Washington D.C. Youth Tour, June 15-20, 2019.

Students whose families receive electric from MEC can apply for this all-expenses-paid trip, which includes a tour of the Civil War battlegrounds in Gettysburg, PA, witnessing the flag ceremony at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, MD, exploring various monuments in D.C. and more. Students will also meet with Michigan senators and congressmen on Capital Hill.

We will select our top applicants to participate in a hands-on educational experience at our Cassopolis headquarters on Friday, March 15. Attendees will learn about MEC, meet with team members to hear about careers in the industry and see what it means to be part of an electric cooperative. After getting to know everyone, we’ll select our candidates to represent us on Youth Tour.
