Washington DC Youth Tour replaced with Scholarship Contest

Montana’s electric cooperatives have elected not to participate in The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) 2021 Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.  However, the Youth Tour essay contest for 2021 will still go on, with the statewide winner receiving a $2,500 scholarship to a college or trade school. In addition, Sun River Electric Cooperative will also offer a $1500 scholarship to its winner.    If you have any questions, please call Ross Oveson at 406-467-2527.

 The topic for this year’s essay is: How has reliable electricity benefited you and your community through the COVID-19 pandemic?
