For more than 50 years, electric cooperatives across Kentucky have recognized outstanding high schoolers by providing a leadership experience for rising seniors.
An all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. is awarded each June to FIVE young people from the Nolin Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation service area. These students spend a week touring Gettysburg, the Smithsonian Institution, Arlington National Cemetery, the FBI Building, the National Zoo, Library of Congress, U.S. Capitol, The White House, the Kennedy Center, plus a visit with Kentucky’s congressional delegation.
