2012 HARMON ELECTRIC ASSOCIATION YOUTH TOUR & COOPERATIVE YOUTH LEADERSHIP CAMP WINNERS CHOSEN


On March 27th, Harmon Electric held the fi nals for the


2012 Youth Tour competition. Chris Dillahunty of Mangum and Nolynn Moreau of Olustee were chosen to receive an all expense paid trip to Washington, D. C. June 15-21, 2012. The trip begins when they join approximately sixty other winners from across Oklahoma for a “Get Acquainted Banquet” in Oklahoma City. The delegates will board a jet the following morning and fl y directly to Washington, D.C. Six thrill packed days in the nation’s Capitol will include a tour of the capitol, a riverboat trip on the Potomac, tour of Mount Vernon, breakfast with Oklahoma’s Congressional delegation and many other points of interest. The Youth Tour competition is available to all students


in Harmon Electric’s service territory who are completing their junior year in high school. The contest consisted of an essay written on a topic chosen by the co-op. This year the topic was “Harmon Electric: Past, Present and Future”. From the essays entered, a panel of judges chose eight


fi nalists. These eight students were invited to give an oral presentation of fi ve minutes or less over their essay and then answered interview


questions


from the judges. From these fi nalists, two winners were chosen for the Washington, D. C. trip. Shawna Stewart of Hollis and Cade Drury of Olustee were also awarded an all expense paid trip to the Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp
