Each year, Kenergy selects three delegates to send on an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. as part of the Washington Youth Tour.

Selected delegates join hundreds of other students from across the United States for the week-long trip. Delegates visit every major monument, tour the Holocaust Museum, spend a day at the Smithsonian Museum, tour Capitol Hill, enjoy music at outdoor concerts, meet their local Congressmen, and much more.

The Kentucky Electric Cooperatives coordinates the trip. Learn more about the Washington Youth Tour.


To be eligible for the Washington Youth Tour, students must:

  • Live in houses powered by Kenergy.  (Whether students live with grandparents or other members of their families does not matter, as long as the house is powered by Kenergy.)
  • Be 11th-graders.
  • Earn a minimum 3.0 overall GPA.

Applications for the 2022 Washington Youth Tour will be available in December 2021.
