Every year La Plata Electric Association has the privilege of sending students to Washington D. C. on the National Rural Electric Youth Tour. This is a seven-day adventure that offers in-depth exposure into the electric cooperative industry while experiencing much that the nation's capitol has to offer.
Some of the locations visited in previous years have been:
The White House
NRECA Town Hall Meeting
Visit with Colorado's U.S. Senators
National Holocaust Memorial
Please take the time to fill out an application, remembering to address all questions and provide all needed information.
We would love to send you to Washington D.C. to represent us!
Completed applications may be dropped off at the Durango or Pagosa Springs office or mailed. Applications must be received by December 17, 2012. If you have questions please call Jeannie Bennett at 382-3505.
