JEFFERSON - Jackson Electric Membership Corporation (JEMC) will send four student delegates on an all-expense paid leadership trip to Washington, D.C., June 13-20 for the 2013 Washington Youth Tour (WYT).

Candidates must be a high school sophomore or junior at least 16 years of age at the time of the trip, with demonstrated leadership, academic excellence and interested in learning about leadership, civic service, American history and U.S. government. Nominees will be chosen by their high school guidance counselors/teachers or are home-schooled students living in a Jackson EMC member’s household who are interested in the program.

The four winners will earn the title of a WYT delegate and an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., joining more than 100 of Georgia’s brightest students and roughly 1,500 students sponsored by electric membership cooperatives across the country.

Only one semi-finalist will be selected to represent their high school. Applicants must submit their application packet to their counselor or guidance office immediately. Deadlines vary by school.

All of the details, an application and FAQ’s are available from high school counselors or on the cooperative’s website at www.jacksonemc.com/youthtour, www.facebook.com/JacksonEMC or contact T. Kay Parks at kparks@jacksonemc.com.
