If you are a high school junior living in Horry County, then you’re qualified to apply for a chance to take part in a five-day, expense-paid trip to the nation’s capital on the 2011 Washington Youth Tour!
Winners of Horry Electric Cooperative’s local Youth Tour competition will join students from around the state and nation June 11 – 16. They’ll tour historic sites, learn about our nation’s government and have lots of fun shopping, dining out, seeing a play and cruising the Potomac at sunset.
Nearly 1,500 students take part each year and two of them are there representing Horry Electric Cooperative. A quiz and personal interview are part of the selection process. Study materials are sent to nominated students well in advance of the date scheduled for the selection process.
Grade point averages are not a consideration. Two alternates will be selected in the event one or both winner is unable to participate. Applications, made available to guidance counselors earlier this month, are also available online at horryelectric.com. You can also contact Horry Electric’s Youth Tour Coordinator, Toni Gore via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling 369-6359. To find out more about this exciting chance of a lifetime for high school juniors, visit horryelectric.com or youthtour.coop.
Application deadline is Friday, February 18!
