Youth Tour OEC’s premier youth program, Youth Tour, gives


high school juniors a chance to explore our nation’s capital completely free! It is a seven-day, all-expenses- paid trip to Washington, D.C. with 70 other juniors from across Oklahoma; OEC sends four students each year. While in D.C., they tour national landmarks, visit historical sites and talk to Oklahoma’s Congressional delegation. Taylor Bookout of Dibble High School, Patrick Bruce of Community Christian School, Peyton Hayes of Bridge Creek High School and Megan Ragsdale of Tuttle High School were awarded the trip in 2013 after an essay, interview, and speech contest.


Leadership Summit OEC sponsors two high school students each


year to attend Touchstone Energy® Cooperative’s Leadership Summit. T e students join other teens from across the state to gain leadership skills from renowned motivational and leadership speakers. Each student is awarded a $250 scholarship and has a chance to win an additional $1,000 in scholarship money. Courtney Clark of Norman and Gabrielle Catteeuw of Washington attended in 2013.


Energy Camp Eighty-eight eighth graders from across the state of


Oklahoma attended Energy Camp in 2013 at Canyon Camp near Hinton. Each year, Energy Camp allows students to form their own soda and candy “co-op” by dividing into “districts” and electing a board of directors. T e board then interviews general manager candidates and hires the one they believe is most able to “lead” the co-op, just like in a real cooperative. In addition to forming their own co-op, campers climb an electric pole, tower 60 feet over camp in a bucket truck, learn about electrical safety, demonstrate team work on a ropes course, and make a host of new friends. In 2013, Dominick Bruce, Joel Bullock, Garrett Fulks and James T ompson represented OEC at Energy Camp.
