The 2021 Youth Tour Scholarship Contest deadline has been extended. Applications are now due on March 12, 2021.
Each year, Central sends two students to Washington, D.C. to take part in the Youth Tour program organized by the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives.
The trip for 2021 has been canceled due to Covid-19, but Central will still be hosting the contest and presenting scholarships instead. To enter, current high school juniors going to school within Central’s service area must write an essay, develop a resume and submit the application on Central’s website.
A group of judges will review the entries and select five students to interview. The top two winners will receive $2,000 scholarships, and the remaining three will receive $250 scholarships.
Full rules and guidelines are available at https://mycentral.coop/youth-programs. The deadline for entry is 5 p.m. on Friday, March 12, 2021.
