Looking for four students to send to Washington DC!

youthtourlogo2013If you are a high school junior living in Horry County, then you’re qualified to apply for a chance to take part in a five-day, expense-paid trip to the nation’s capital on the 2014 Washington Youth Tour! This year, four students will be selected!

Winners of Horry Electric Cooperative’s local Youth Tour competition will join students from around the state and nation June 14 through 19 in Washington, DC. They’ll tour historic sites, learn about our nation’s government and have lots of fun shopping, dining out, seeing a play and cruising the Potomac at sunset.

Nearly 1,500 students take part each year.  A quiz and personal interview are part of the selection process at Horry Electric Cooperative. Study materials are sent to nominated students well in advance of the date scheduled for the selection process.

Grade point averages are not a consideration. Two alternates will be selected in the event any of the four students selected are unable to participate.  Applications, made available to guidance counselors earlier this month, are also available online at horryelectric.com.  You can also contact Horry Electric’s Youth Tour Coordinator, Toni Gore via email  (toni.gore@horryelectric.com) or by calling 369-6359.   To find out more about this exciting chance of a lifetime for high school juniors, visit horryelectric.com or youthtour.coop.

Application deadline is Friday, February 28!
