Washington Youth Tour
Each year, Kenergy sends six students on an all-expense-paid trip titled the Washington Youth Tour. The mid-June trip is coordinated through the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives in Louisville. You may read more about this tour by clicking here.
Students will see every major monument, cruise the Potomac River, visit the Holocaust Museum, spend a day at the Smithsonian, tour Capitol Hill, hear outdoor concerts and much, much more.
To be eligible the Washington Youth Tour, students must live in a house powered by Kenergy Corp. Whether students live with grandparents or other members of their families does not matter, as long as the house is powered by Kenergy. Students living with guardians or in foster care may be required to have a signed letter stating their home is powered by Kenergy.
A panel of judges will select the winners in March.
All Washington Youth Tour winners must go to Frankfort for an overnight trip in April. Kenergy pays for this trip as well. If a student cannot attend the Frankfort trip, he or she will not be allowed to go on the Washington trip in June.
Washington Youth Tour does not coincide with the Governor Scholar program.
DISCLAIMER: Washington Youth Tour awards will be chosen by a panel of judges selected by Kenergy. The panel’s decision is final. All materials, images, resumes, essays and applications submitted by the applicant become the sole and absolute property of Kenergy. It is the sole decision and discretion of Kenergy to disqualify any applicant who does not comply with any of the entry and participation rules as set forth by the co-op.
