Electric Cooperative Youth Tour
Each year, Shelby Energy Cooperative sponsors three high school Juniors for the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. Selected students will join nearly 1,500 students from across the country for a week-long, all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C. where they will tour national monuments, government buildings and museums.
Congratulations to Shelby Energy's 2020 Electric Cooperative Youth Tour delegates:
