heading to Washington D.C. as winners of VVEC’s 52nd Annual Youth Tour Contest. Several others will be recipients of cash scholar- ships for their strong efforts as Runner-ups.


VVEC offered students the choice of taking a test or writing an essay. This year’s essay title was “Who owns VVEC and what are the advantages of Co-op ownership.” The Youth Tour Competition is always open to any Junior attend- ing a high school or who is home schooled in the VVEC service ter- ritory. Participant’s parents do not have to be members of VVEC. Logan Bryant, son of


Chance and Sayra Bryant, of Barn- sdall, is the Essay winner, while

A big thanks goes out to all seventy students that participated in this year’s contest. Without the commitment of their teach- ers, this program would wither. As always, Rebekah Askew teacher of the Oologah-Talala students, was instrumental in producing several winners. VVEC is appreciative of her and her continuing support of this program. And fi nally, to Wilma Logue, Barnsdall teacher of two winning participants, VVEC salutes you as well!
