Youth Tour

Since 1972, Clark Energy and other Kentucky electric cooperatives have participated in the Rural Electric Youth Tour. Selected high school junior class delegates from Clark Energy’s service territory spend an all-expense paid week in Washington, DC with other students from Kentucky and nationwide. During this activity-filled week, co-op sponsored students learn about electric cooperatives, American history, U.S. government, and the important roles they play in today’s society and in policy-making decisions.
