Johnson County REMC is sponsoring two students on the Indiana Youth Tour June 8-15. Youth Tour provides young Hoosiers the opportunity to visit the nation’s capital, learn about government, experience American history and gain a better understanding about their electric cooperative and government.
According to Dayana Sanchez, Communications Coordinator of Johnson County REMC, a delegation of 107 Indiana students representing 36 Indiana electric cooperatives are in the midst of the trip. More than 1,800 students from 46 states are traveling to Washington for the week-long experience.
The following students are representing Johnson County REMC on Youth Tour:
“Johnson County REMC is pleased to provide this opportunity for our local youth,” Sanchez said. “It’s a great trip and a wonderful chance to see the sites, make new friends and learn how everyone, even young people, can make a difference in the political process.”
Students participating in the trip are visiting the Flight 93 Memorial, the Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian museums, the National Mall memorials, and the National Museum of the Marine Corps; taking a night cruise on the Potomac River; and much more.
The Indiana Youth Tour students also participate in a youth rally, during which they will share their thoughts and opinions on a variety of timely issues. The youth rally will prepare the students for a day on Capitol Hill, where they will have an opportunity to meet with Indiana’s congressional delegation.
