2014 Youth Tour Delegates Investing in the Local Leaders of Tomorrow


Energy Efficiency Tip of the Month


A well-designed landscape provides both energy efficiency and curb appeal for your home. The type of vegetation you choose is as important as where they are planted. Sunlight streaming through windows and bearing down on the roof can drive up air conditioner use. Using shade trees and shrubs in your landscaping plan can help reduce cooling costs. In the winter, deciduous trees lose their leaves and let in warmth.

Lake Region Electric Coop- erative is pleased to announce the selection of three delegates to participate in the 2014 Elec- tric Cooperative Youth Tour trip to Washington, D.C. The selections were made based on essays written on a topic cho- sen by the cooperative. From the essays entered, the local schools chose their finalists to compete in the final question and answer session held at the LREC main office in Hulbert. A panel of three judges inter- viewed the students based on their subject knowledge, per- sonality, speaking ability, and presentation. All of the partici- pating students who qualified for the final judging received a $50 cash prize. The Youth Tour com- petition is available to all students in LREC’s service territory who are com- pleting their junior year in high school. Glen Clark, Youth Tour Coordinator, visited local schools in the service ter- ritory and presented a presenta- tion about the electric coop- erative history and the annual
