Rushford, MN (10 a.m. March 12, 2013)—Chelsea Schossow, from Houston, Minn., has won an all-expenses paid trip to Washington D.C., courtesy of Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC). As the winner of TEC's Youth Tour Contest, Schossow will represent the cooperative on the 2013 Rural Electric Youth Tour June 14-20 in Washington D.C. She is a senior at Winona Senior High School and the daughter of Keith Schossow and Cynthia Terrill.



While meeting nationally-known political figures and visiting historical sites in and around the Capitol, students learn about electric cooperatives on a local, state and national level.

Contestants completed TEC’s online contest exam. Those scoring 90 percent or greater were granted interviews. A panel of judges made up of members of TEC’s Advisory Committee and Operation Round Up Trust Board selected Schossow as this year’s winner.



In June, Schossow will join about 1,500 other high school students sponsored by other electric cooperatives across 43 states. Electric cooperatives have been sending students to participate in this unique program since the early 1960s. To date, over 40,000 students from rural areas and small towns all over America have participated in the Rural Electric Youth Tour.



Each year TEC hosts the Youth Tour Contest which is open to high school juniors or seniors attending one of the following high schools: Caledonia, Chosen Valley, Cotter, Fillmore Central, Hope Lutheran, Houston, Kingsland, La Crescent, Lanesboro, LeRoy-Ostrander, Lewiston-Altura, Mabel-Canton, Rushford-Peterson, St. Charles, Spring Grove, Stewartville or Winona. Home schoolers who live within the cooperative’s service territory are also eligible. For more information about TEC's Youth Tour visit www.tec.coop.
