all expense paid trip to Washington, D.C.

 

 

Freeborn-Mower Cooperative Services’ (FMCS) Annual Youth Tour Competition is in full swing, attracting participation from 11th graders living in the FMCS service territory.

 

Eligible students from area schools lying within the FMCS service territory are invited to write a 500 word essay on this topic. Describe the cooperative business model. Give examples of why this model works for your electric cooperative and the members that it serves. A panel of outside judges has been selected and will review the essays and completed application forms.

 

Participants and family members will be invited to attend a banquet on March 19th where they will meet with the judges. One winner will be announced that evening. Students must be present to be eligible.

 

Cooperatives throughout the United States participate in the event, and the local winners will join their counterparts from coast-to-coast in Washington, D.C. from June 15 – 20, 2013.
