Middle Georgia EMC will select four teenagers to join dozens of other students, representing electric cooperatives across Georgia, on the Washington Youth Tour. The competition is open to all high school students who live in or attend a school in Middle Georgia EMC’s primary service area, which consist of Dooly, Pulaski, and Wilcox counties (Applicants are not required to reside in a household served by MGEMC.) The tour begins with a banquet for participants and their parents. Then the students enjoy a day of activities in their home state before flying to Washington, D.C., for an incredible week in our nation’s capital. Once they are in Washington, they will have the opportunity to meet Youth Tour students from all across the nation.  The deadline to apply for the Washington Youth Tour is Thursday March 1, 2018.
