What is Youth Tour?
An all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C.! The Youth Tour program teaches students about cooperatives and how our system of government operates. Each year, West Florida Electric Cooperative (WFEC), along with the Florida Electric Cooperative Association (FECA), sponsors a Youth Tour contest for the sons and daughters of WFEC’s member-owners.
Four high school juniors will win a $4,000 scholarship to Chipola College. One winner will be chosen from Youth Tour candidates from each county served by the cooperative.
How Can I Be a Part of It?
You must be a high school junior and your parents or guardians must be members of West Florida Electric. If you’re interested, contact your school’s guidance counselor for more information or download the forms here. *There is a limit of one participant per high school, so make sure you talk with your counselor before submitting your paperwork to WFEC.*
