Washington D.C. Youth Tour—Apply Today

December 01, 2023

Get ready for an adventure of a lifetime. As a youth delegate you’ll travel to our nation’s capitol and make lifelong friends with students from across the country. You’ll explore museums, memorials, monuments, and get the opportunity to meet with Oregon’s congressional delegation. The best part—all expenses are paid by Salem Electric. Are you up for it? 

The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, D.C. for a week in June each year since the late 1950s. Salem Electric is looking for energetic, adventurous high school juniors and seniors who live in our service area to apply and learn about the electric utility industry and how the Federal legislative process works. 

Students are selected through an application and interview process. Applications are available online at SalemElectric.com/youth-tour and at our office during business hours. The deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. on January 16, 2024, and the selected student must be available to travel June 16–22, 2024.
