Rural Electric Youth Tour
Winners have been chosen for Claiborne Electric Cooperative's 2017 Rural Electric Youth Tour contest.

Randi Markham from Claiborne Academy has also been selected to attend the Rural Electric Youth Tour to represent the Association of Louisiana Electric Cooperatives.
Wade, Haynes, and Markham will join a delegation of approximately 30 high school students from Louisiana in traveling to the nation’s capital for an all-expenses-paid trip in June. There, they will join nearly 1,500 students from across the nation for the Rural Electric Youth Tour. During the week, the students will learn how the nation’s rural electric cooperatives work. They will be treated to a comprehensive tour of many of Washington’s most famous sites. Students will also experience fun events such as dances and a yacht cruise, as well as visits on Capitol Hill with the Louisiana congressional delegation.
