Each year, Kenergy selects three high school juniors to attend the Washington Youth Tour. A team of Kenergy-area judges selected students based on their academic resume and a 1,000-word essay on the subject of their choice. Kenergy is thrilled to announce the three delegates for the 2022 Washington Youth Tour.
Conner Blackburn of Hanson – Conner is the son of Ashley Blackburn. He attends Madisonville North Hopkins High School.
Jennavieve Luppino of Centertown – Jennavieve is the daughter of Brad Luppino. She attends Abreka Academy.
Noah Norris of Owensboro – Noah is the son of Scott and Jaime Norris. He attends Daviess County High School.
The delegates will travel to Washington, D.C. for an all-expense paid trip in June. The week-long trip will allow students to learn about leadership, the cooperative model, and also explore the nation’s capital. Our delegates will tour Gettysburg, the Smithsonian Institute, Arlington National Cemetery, the FBI Building, the National Zoo, Library of Congress, U.S. Capitol, and the White House to visit with Kentucky’s congressional delegation to learn more about energy issues.
More than 1,500 students from across America take part in the Youth Tour experience each year. The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) has been coordinating this program since the 1950’s.
Congratulations to this year’s winners!
