YOUTH TOUR 2023
Cass County Electric Cooperative holds an essay contest for local high schools to select two Youth Tour students each year.
To enter the contest, you must be a sophomore or junior in high school.
You and your parent(s)/guardian(s) must be served by Cass County Electric Cooperative.
If chosen as a Youth Tour delegate, you will be traveling to Washington, D.C., with co-op representatives from across North Dakota to experience and learn about America's rich history. What moment in American history do you wish you had been a part of and what would you have contributed?
Submissions are judged by a panel of Cass County Electric Cooperative employees.
Essays are due by January 20, 2023.
The quality of work is more important than quantity. There are no requirements of project length. View the grading rubric here.
