Washington Youth Tour

The trip of a lifetime is an essay away

 

At MTE, we don’t just serve houses, we serve families. High school juniors are encouraged to write an original paper about rural electric cooperatives with winners awarded an inclusive paid trip to Washington, D.C.

Each year, we sponsor a creative writing contest with an unforgettable, expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., as its prize.

Who gets to participate? High School Juniors

When does it happen? June

When is the deadline for entries? February 14

How do I enter to win? To enter the contest, students are asked to write short stories describing how local electric co-ops are connecting their communities with power, information, and opportunities. If you know a student or teacher who might like to participate, share this information with him or her. Teachers are encouraged to present the creative essay contest to their students as part of their classroom assignments.
