2015 Washington Youth Tour
Article was added on Monday, January 05, 2015
Each year, Santee Electric Cooperative, Inc. selects two high
school students to represent the co-op as delegates for the
Washington Youth Tour.
In the summer before their senior year, these two lucky students
join hundreds of others from across the country
- all-expenses paid - to network and
learn about our nation's capital. The tour is a fast-paced
leadership opportunity to see what makes America tick.
Rising seniors compete in written application, interview, and

The Washington Youth Tour, sponsored nationally by the National Rural
Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) and statewide
by Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina
(ECSC), is a jam-packed backstage pass to Washington,
It offers rising high school seniors - students currently
juniors - an unforgettable leadership experience in our nation's
capital. It's free!
Since 1965, the Washington Youth Tour has given
more than 40,000 students nationwide the
opportunity to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. The
program was initially implemented at the request of President
Lyndon Johnson to "send youngsters to the nation's capital where
they can actually see what the flag stands for and represents."
