Due to challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are sad to announce that Iowa will not be sending students one Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. in 2021. Please check back in January 2022 for Youth Tour opportunities in 2022.
Midland Power invites area high school sophomores and juniors to apply for Youth Tour! It's an exciting week-long, all expense paid trip to our nation's Capitol, typically in June.
This trip is a great opportunity for young adults:
- Join over 1,800 students from across the country
- Meet Iowa's members of Congress
- Take a boat cruise on the Potomac River
- Visit Smithsonian museums
- Make new friends
- Sharpen leadership skills
- Tour historic sites
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 long-lasting friendships!
Midland Power will select and sponsor one student (sophomore or junior) from schools around our territory to represent the co-op on Youth Tour through an evaluation of the overall strength of the applicants.
