** 2021 Virtual Youth Tour Applications Closed **
Fleming-Mason Energy Finalists to be announced June 30, 2021!
For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives across Kentucky have recognized outstanding high schoolers by providing a leadership experience for rising seniors.
In 2021, due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Kentucky Electric Cooperatives is offering a virtual Youth Leadership Summit, rather than the traditional Frankfort Youth Tour and Washington Youth Tour.
This dynamic four-day interactive experience will focus on electric cooperatives, leadership, and civic engagement. Like traditional youth tour itineraries, the summit will allow unique access to elected leaders. Summit delegates will compete in a small group challenge to demonstrate what they learned and have a chance to win a scholarship. Everyone who participates in this program will be eligible to apply for an annual $10,000 national college scholarship only available to Youth Tour alumni.
Youth Leadership Summit students will be expected to participate in a one day session scheduled for August 3rd, 2021. Attendance will be taken, and prizes will be given at the end of the session.
Should it be deemed safe to gather later this summer a special outing will be planned for students.
Those selected to represent Fleming-Mason Energy in this year's Virtual Youth Tour will also receive an IPad.
