For 57 years, Farmers' Electric Cooperative has sponsored all-expense-paid trips to our nation's capital for area high school juniors. In 2004, the Co-op added additional all-expense-paid trips to the Cooperative Youth Conference & Leadership Experience (C.Y.C.L.E.) in Jefferson City. In 2010, the Cooperative opened the C.Y.C.L.E. conference to area high school sophomores.
Topics are provided for the contest which is open to all sophomores and juniors attending a high school that is located within the service territory of Farmers' Electric Cooperative. The contest is also open to a high school sophomore or junior who resides in a home on the Cooperative's system but attends a high school outside the Cooperative's service territory (where the essay contest is not offered at that high school). Children of Cooperative employees and directors are not eligible to participate in the contest.
Sophomore and Junior class English and History instructors will receive the essay contest information and applications in early winter each year.
