Tri-County Electric has provided hundreds of trips and thousands of dollars in scholarships to students in the communities it serves. Beginning with 2012, a new trip has been added to the list of the free opportunities for students: a trip to Colorado!


Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp Video Challenge


The cooperative wants to see how creative high school students can be and is issuing a video challenge. Tri-County Electric’s tag line is “Power of Community.” The cooperative wants to know what the power of community means to those individuals applying for the trip. They might answer the question, “how do you demonstrate the power of community?” Submissions should be bold, creative, and exciting - the sky is the limit. Videos can be taken with a cell phone or traditional video camera, but there are requirements. Be sure to check the application for details. Details and criteria are available on the application on the cooperative’s website under community, youth and education.


Oklahoma Panhandle State University Scholarship Program


Many graduating seniors are beginning their search for an affordable yet excellent college education this spring. The Panhandle region is fortunate to have a local four year baccalaureate granting institution in Oklahoma Panhandle State University (OPSU) located in Goodwell. OPSU is one of the most affordable four year universities for hundreds of miles and is the right choice for many students each year within the Panhandle and beyond. The university offers a myriad of degree programs with nearly 100 undergraduate degrees.


Each year, Tri-County Electric grants four $1,200 scholarships to graduating high school seniors attending OPSU. Applications were mailed to all area high school counselors for distribution to students interested in applying. They are also available at www.tri-countyelectric.coop. Applications are judged based on several criteria including: college entrance examination scores as well as academic achievement and the student’s financial need for the scholarship.


Youth Power Energy Camp


Energy Camp is designed to help students develop their leadership skills, have summertime fun, and at the same time learn about rural electrification. Campers have the opportunity to climb a utility pole, watch a co-op crew at work and lots of fun swimming, playing volleyball and making friends. A trip to Celebration Station is planned as well. It’s free, it’s educational and it’s super fun.
