Beltrami Electric Cooperative is once again accepting applications for its fun-filled 2012 Youth Tour, an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 16-21.
Each year the cooperative sponsors one high school junior whose parent or guardian is a member of Beltrami Electric Cooperative.
The successful candidate will join hundreds of other high school cooperative representatives from across the nation as they tour our nation's capitol, meet members of congress, visit historic sites and learn the role government plays in the electric industry.
To qualify, candidates must submit an application, write a 500-word essay and submit two letters of reference from teachers, group or community leaders and have a parent or guardian who is a member of Beltrami Electric Cooperative.
Applications must be received by March 1 and are available via download at Beltrami Electric's website, www.beltramielectric.com or at the Beltrami Electric Cooperative office located at 4111 Technology Dr. NW, Bemidji, MN 56601.
Those interested should mail their applications, letters of recommendation and essays to Youth Tour, Beltrami Electric Cooperative, Inc., PO Box 488, Bemidji, MN 56619-0488.
