Washington Youth Tour
2022 Washington Youth Tour
For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives across Kentucky have recognized outstanding high schoolers by providing a leadership experience for rising seniors.
In 2021, the Washington Youth Tour was changed to a virtual Youth Leadership Summit. However, planning is moving forward for the traditional Frankfort Youth Tour and Washington Youth Tour.
A total of four Virtual Youth Leadership Summit participants may be selected as follows:
Two Awards from Director District I ‑ Comprised of Barren and Edmonson Counties.
One Award from Director District II ‑ Comprised of Hart, Grayson, and Larue Counties.
One Award from Director District III ‑ Comprised of Metcalfe, Green and Adair Counties.
Tour winners will spend a week touring Washington, D.C. landmarks. In previous years, students have visited locations such as Gettysburg, the Smithsonian Institute, Arlington National Cemetery, the FBI Building, Library of Congress, U.S. Capitol, the White House, the Kennedy Center, The Holocaust Museum and Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello, plus a visit with Kentucky's congressional delegation and perhaps even the President of the United States. Everyone who participates in this program will be eligible to apply for an annual $10,000 national college scholarship only available to Youth Tour alumni.
Deadline to apply is January 31, 2022.
