RUSHFORD, Minn. - Area junior and senior high school students have until February 21 to take part in a contest to win an all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C. to attend the 2014 Rural Electric Youth Tour June 13-19, courtesy of Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC).

The tour is a fast-paced leadership opportunity to see what helps make America tick. The trip includes tours of several historic monuments and museums, visits with Minnesota’s political leaders, and the opportunity to learn more about electric cooperatives on a local, state and national level. Chelsea Schossow, of Houston, Minn., was sponsored by TEC in 2013. She was one of about 1,500 high school juniors and seniors that participated in last year’s event.

The contest is open to high school juniors or seniors who attend 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.

To enter the contest, students must complete the Youth Tour exam online at www.tec.coop. The exam portion consists of 25 questions regarding electric cooperatives, plus four short essay questions. All answers to the questions can be found within TEC’s website. Exams must be submitted to TEC by Feb. 21 to be considered for the contest.

Tri-County Electric Cooperative is a member-owned electric distribution cooperative serving three counties in Minnesota including Winona, Houston and Fillmore and parts of Olmsted and Mower counties in Minnesota and Howard, Winneshiek and Allamakee counties in Iowa. It provides electricity to more than 12,800 services in the area. TEC is a Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
