Unfortunately, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Washington D.C. Youth Tour as well as the Idaho Youth Rally have been cancelled for 2020. We will be reaching out to participants to offer them attendance in 2021. We regret this but the health and safety of our participants is, as always, our first priority.
Umatilla Electric will send a high school junior on a week-long, all expense paid, educational trip to Washington, D.C. in June 2020. The Youth Tour is open to area high school juniors whose parents or guardians are members of Umatilla Electric Cooperative. The applicant is required to write a 300-500 word essay on a provided topic. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9.
Students who are interested in attending the 2020 Idaho Youth Leadership Conference in July will not only have the opportunity to meet other students from around the country, but they also build self-confidence and hone their leadership skills. Participants also compete for scholarships and a chance to win a trip to Washington D.C. The fun-filled, educational leadership camp is held at the College of Idaho in Caldwell, Idaho.
School Supply Program
UEC annually gives school supplies to area elementary school students who need help obtaining supplies for classroom use. Supplies are delivered to area schools for distribution by school staff.
