Posted in Business Announcements

Rushford, MN- Area junior and senior high school students have until Feb. 27 to take part in a contest to win an all expense paid trip to Washington D.C. for the 2011 Rural Electric Youth Tour June 11-16, 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. Stephanie Wick, from Rushford-Peterson High School, was sponsored by TEC in 2010. She was one of about 1,400 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 a short essay. All answers to the questions can be found within TEC's website. Students scoring a 90 percent or higher on the exam will be scheduled for a brief interview in March with judges from TEC's advisory committee. The advisory committee chooses the winner and an alternate for the trip.

Exams must be submitted to TEC by Feb. 27 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.
