Tri-County EMC accepting applications for 2013 Youth Tour

MILLEDGEVILLE — Tri-County EMC is accepting applications from area high school students for consideration in the prestigious Washington Youth Tour, a unique, all-expenses-paid, leadership opportunity available once a year to students in Georgia. The two chosen students will join more than 100 youth from Georgia to represent the state during the 2013 Washington Youth Tour to be held June 13-20. 

The fast-paced, high-energy program is designed to give students a taste of democracy in action, expose them to the nation’s rich history through visits to national monuments and museums, and encourage students to become active in their communities.

The tour begins in Georgia where students get to know each other, learn about Georgia’s 42 EMCs and the electric cooperative industry and enjoy a private tour of the birthplace of rural electrification — the Little White House in Warm Springs. 

The group then travels to Washington, D.C. to connect with more than 1,500 students from across the country. While there, they will cruise down the Potomac River; lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington Cemetery; and tour the U.S. Supreme Court, the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, Mount Vernon, the National Cathedral and Ford’s Theater. Students will also visit memorials honoring Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Washington; World War II; the Vietnam and Korean Wars; and watch the U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps and the Silent Drill Platoon perform at the Iwo Jima Memorial. Students will also visit the Smithsonian Institute, Newseum and Holocaust Museums. 

To be eligible students must be age 16 or older by June 9, 2013 and must reside in a home served by Tri-County EMC. 

Visit tri-countyemc.com/washington-youth-tour.da for more information or to download an application. Applications must be sent to Kim Bonner at P.O. Box 487, Gray, GA 31032 by Feb. 15
