Youth Tour

Each year, Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative holds a contest to select one local sophomore or junior high school student to attend the NRECA Youth Tour.

The trip to Washington, D.C. is an all-expenses paid trip to see our nation’s capital. The winner will travel with approximately 40 other Minnesota teens, and join 1,400 students from across the nation during the Youth Tour. Participants will learn about cooperatives, visit with legislators at the Capitol, see the national monuments, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
