Each year, Arrowhead Cooperative holds a contest to select two local junior high school students to attend the NRECA Youth Tour.

The trip to Washington, D.C. is an all-expenses paid trip to see our nation’s capital. The winners will travel with approximately 40 other Minnesota teens, and join 1,400 students from across the nation during the Youth Tour. Participants will learn about cooperatives, visit with legislators at the Capitol, see the national monuments, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

To apply for the trip, students are required to submit an application and an essay. These materials are made available in January each year.
