Youth Day in Springfield and Youth Tour to Washington DC are open to high school sophomores and juniors that are children of Clinton County Electric Cooperative members. (Children of Clinton County Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees or employees may attend at their own expense.)

Up to 12 students will participate with more than 125 other youths from other Illinois electric cooperatives in Illinois Rural Electric Youth Day in Springfield set for April 13, 2016.
