high school juniors from OEC’s service territory are treated to a week-long, all-expenses-paid tour of Washington, D.C. As winners of OEC’s annual Youth Tour essay and speech contest, the winning delegates join over 60 students from Oklahoma and hundreds nationwide as they tour historic sites and national landmarks.
