YOUTH TO SPRINGFIELD.
A panel of judges will choose up to 12 students who will participate with more than 125 other youths from other Illinois electric cooperatives in Illinois Rural Electric Youth Day in Springfield set for Wednesday, March 25, 2015. The day’s activities in Springfield will include touring the State Capitol complex, visiting with legislators and a luncheon. Transportation to Youth Day in Springfield will be provided by the Cooperative.
Of the 12 students attending Youth Day in Springfield, two will have the opportunity to participate in the Washington DC Youth Tour. The two local winners will join approximately 70 other Illinois students who are winners of similar contests sponsored by other Illinois electric cooperatives. They will travel on air-conditioned buses, leaving on June 12 and returning June 19. While in Washington DC, they will visit such attractions as the White House, U.S. Capitol, Smithsonian Institution, Arlington National Cemetery, Lincoln Monument and many other national monuments and places of interest.
