OTEC announces winners of 2014 Washington, D.C., youth tour
Four local high school student leaders have been selected to represent Oregon Trail Electric Co-op at the 2014 Rural Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C., this June.
Among those selected were Erin Bodfish of La Grande, Kate Averett of Baker City, Mariah Ribeiro of Burns and Marta Faulkner of Canyon City. All four student leaders will represent Oregon and the Northwest as they join nearly 2,000 students from across the United States for a one-week trip to our nation’s capital.
Over the course of the tour week, the student leaders will visit famous historical sites, learn leadership skills and meet with congressional leaders. The students will create podcasts and digital photo projects as they learn about electric cooperatives and current issues in energy and climate change legislation that face their communities and our nation.
