Youth Programs N


ortheast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative (NEOEC) is pleased to continue its youth programs in 2014. NEOEC hosts two essay con- tests for area students to attend Energy Camp or Youth Tour, and an opportunity for high school seniors to be awarded scholarship dollars.


Energy Camp is for students who are currently enrolled in the eighth grade in one of the schools included in the cooperative’s service area. The camp is a fun-filled time at Canyon Camp near Red Rock Canyon in Hinton, Oklahoma. Students will have the opportunity to run a mock utility company first-hand, climb a pole, watch a co-op crew at work, and tour one of the largest generating facilities in Okla- homa


Youth Tour is open to students who currently attend one of the area schools and are enrolled in the eleventh grade. The cooperative is pleased to sponsor this all-expense-paid, educational trip to Washington, D.C., for exceptional students from northeast Oklahoma. Each year, the cooperative awards scholarship money to four students from across its service area. One student from each county— Craig/Rogers, Delaware, Mayes and Ottawa—is selected to receive $1,000 in assistance.
