High school students within the UEC service territory have the opportunity to attend this prestigious camp all expenses paid, courtesy of Umatilla Electric Cooperative.

Each year, UEC sponsors several local high school students at the Idaho Consumer-Owned Utilities Association’s (ICUA) annual Youth Rally. For one week, youth — representing Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Alaska — converge in Caldwell, Idaho, at the College of Idaho Campus to participate in a variety of activities and classes to promote positive relationships and build skills in leadership, teamwork, perseverance, and more. Students have a chance to also learn more about government, drug and alcohol awareness, and the electrical/energy industry

Applicants must be available for an informal ten-minute interview. The dates and times of the interviews will be coordinated with each respective applicant or high school.
