Fun camp for kids Energy Camp introduces teens to co-ops


K


iamichi Electric is looking for a couple of fun-loving eighth grade students to attend Oklahoma YouthPower Energy Camp. The camp takes place May 28-31 in the Red Rock Canyon near Hinton, Oklahoma.


Energy Camp encourages teen leadership and teamwork by teaching basic cooperative principles. Campers organize their own coop, elect directors, approve bylaws, and gain a better understanding of how cooperatives work. Teens also enjoy plenty of time for swimming, volleyball and outdoor games and activities.


Kiamichi Electric will select two teens to attend Energy Camp this year. Interested eighth graders are encouraged to fill out an application, available at the co-op office and online at www.kiamichielectric.org. For more details on Energy Camp, please call Todd Minshall at 800-888-2731 or send email toddm@kiamichielectric.org. ■


Energy campers get a lesson in pole climbing from electric co-op linemen. Most teens agree: It's a lot harder than it looks! PHOTO/OAEC.


Scholarships Available for Local Teens from Operation Roundup


Kiamichi Electric's Operation Roundup program is encouraging local students to apply for a college scholarship. This year, Operation Roundup will award scholarships of up to $2,500 to qualified applicants.


Scholarships may be used to pay tuition fees at any Oklahoma college or university. Scholarships are available for graduating seniors as well as second-year college students.


"The goal is to help young people in our area receive a college degree," said Todd Minshall, who coordinates the scholarship program for Kiamichi Electric. "Our co-op members should feel very good about where their extra pennies are going."


Minshall is referring to money that members contribute when they participate in Operation Roundup. The program "rounds up" each participant's electric bill to the next whole dollar, with the difference going into the Operation Roundup fund.


The fund is used to support community improvement projects, volunteer fire departments, civic groups, charities, senior citizen centers, and other worthy groups, as well as needy families and individuals.


The deadline to apply for an Operation Roundup scholarship is April 30, 2013. Scholarship applications are available online at www.kiamichielectric.org, or call Todd Minshall at 800-888-2731 for more information. ■
