APPLICATIONS FOR 2023 YOUTH TOUR ARE NOW CLOSED.
Talquin Electric Cooperative is looking for students to serve as delegates for the 2023 Talquin Youth Tour. Twenty-four student-representatives will be sponsored with a visit to Florida’s capital city for a two-day, overnight conference on February 15- 16, 2023 and awarded a scholarship for post-secondary education. While learning about the cooperative business model and Florida’s legislative process, students visit the state’s Capitol. The Talquin Youth Tour includes a visit to the House of Representatives’ Chambers and a session in the Supreme Court. During this experience, four students will be chosen to represent Talquin at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Youth Tour in Washington D.C. on June 13-18, 2023. The Washington D.C. Youth Tour includes visits to the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, Mt. Vernon, Vietnam Memorial, and many more historic sites, alongside hundreds of other students from around the nation!
Students must have a close relative who is a Talquin Member in order to apply and be considered. Students must also be a high school junior in the Talquin service area.
