What is the Government-in-Action Youth Tour?
Every June, as many as 1,500 high school students from across the country spend a week in the nation's capital of Washington D.C. as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to learn about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities.
Participants get to take part in National Youth Day, visit with representative and senators of Iowa, and explore the sights around the nation’s capital. Participating in the Youth Tour is an awesome way to learn about this great nation, develop leadership skills, gain a better understanding of electric cooperatives, and make friendships that will last beyond the week!

Midland Power selects and sponsors two students from its territory to represent the coop on this great opportunity through an evaluation of the overall strength of the applicants.
