ne of my favorite things about co-ops is their commitment to the next generation. I love to see


electric co-ops reaching out to students in both the urban and rural areas to offer them unique opportunities they just can’t find anywhere else. We have kicked off our


youth programs campaign and I can’t wait to meet the young people we will be sending to Energy Camp and Youth Tour this summer. You can meet the winners of this year’s Leadership Summit, a scholarship and leadership seminar, on page 8 of this month’s issue. Tory Tedder-Loffland,





them to visit our website, okcoop.org, to get all the information they need, but they should hurry! Te deadline is Feb. 2, so they don’t have much time. Another fun activity

OEC’s youth programs coordinator, visited several local high schools recently to tell juniors about the Youth Tour program. It’s a week- long, all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. with about 70 other Oklahoma students. Tey join over 1,600 of their peers in the nation’s capital for a week of touring, sight-seeing, making new friends and learning about different aspects of government. If you know any high school


them unique opportunities they just can’t find anywhere else.


coming up is Energy Camp. It’s a four-day camp for eighth graders at Canyon Camp and Conference Center near Hinton. Tere, the kids learn about the inner workings of electric co-ops as they elect their own board of directors to run a soda and candy co-op. Tey participate in team-building exercises and play games, as well. It’s a fun-filled four days. Read more about it on page 8. We join with other co-ops


Help us spread the word about juniors who would be interested, tell


the good things co-ops are doing to reward students of today. If you know a junior or an eighth grader living in OEC’s service area, tell them about these wonderful programs. We look forward to meeting them and seeing them make a difference.





in hopes of educating the next generation of members about the history and future of electric co-ops. It was important then, and it’s important now.
