One student from Nobles Cooperative Electric's service area was recently selected to represent Nobles Cooperative Electric on a week-long, all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C., June 14-21.

Andrea Fuerstenberg, a junior at Fulda High School, was selected as the cooperative's Youth Tour delegate, winning a free trip to Washington, D.C. She will be representing Nobles Cooperative Electric among 1,500 high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors from cooperatives throughout the country. Andrea is the daughter of Gary and Karen of Wilmont.

The second place winner selected was Ariana Lopez, who attends Worthington High School as a junior. She won $150. Ariana is the daughter of Julie and Jorge of rural Worthington.

Tracy Prins, a junior at Worthington High School, received third place and $100. She is the daughter of Jerrit and Kerry of rural Worthington.

The Youth Tour is open to all high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors that live or go to school in Nobles Cooperative Electric's service area. Those that apply participate in the contest by filling out an application and writing an essay. A panel of three judges review each submitted application and essay; they then choose the finalists and interview them. Judges determine which finalist wins the trip of a lifetime.

For some, the Youth Tour is a first experience away from home. For many, it is their first trip to Washington, D.C. where they have the opportunity to see our nationís history come alive before their eyes. "This is a trip of a lifetime," said General Manager Richard Burud. "A perfect opportunity to travel to the center of our nation's government, work with cooperative leaders from across the country, and enhance leadership skills." The next opportunity to apply for the Youth Tour is January 2014.

The Washington Youth Tour is a top-notch tour of our nation's capitol that includes meetings with national leaders, as well as visiting all the major sights. Students also meet and discuss their views and interests with students from other states while learning about government, history, careers in public service and electric cooperatives. Nobles Cooperative Electric sponsors this program to identify and encourage future leaders in our community.
