WADESBORO — Pee Dee Electric is sending up to two students on the annual Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. and is seeking applications from interested students.

Delegates embarking on the June 20-26, 2020 Tour will see democracy at work in meetings with North Carolina’s congressional delegation, practice networking and leadership skills, and visit sites such as the Washington Monument, Arlington National Cemetery and Smithsonian museums. 

High school students who will be juniors or seniors during the 2019-20 school year and are served by Pee Dee Electric are eligible to apply. Statewide, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives will send a delegation of approximately 48 students who will join nearly 1,800 Tourists representing 46 states. 

“Pee Dee Electric is excited to provide this opportunity for our local youth,” said Seth Allen, communications specialist. “The Youth Tour becomes what the students make it. Whether they’re a history buff, an arts prodigy or a budding politician, the Youth Tour has something for every single student. We are happy to invest in our young members and help them find a path to accomplish their dreams and seek new opportunities.” 

A leadership development tradition more than 50 years old, the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour is sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and electric co-ops nationwide.
