Indiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.

Each summer Daviess-Martin REMC and other electric cooperatives sponsor the Rural Electric Cooperative’s Youth Tour to Washington D.C. Students who are in their junior year of high school are chosen to attend this week-long tour of our nation’s capital.

This action-packed trip gives students the opportunity to visit national monuments, museums and memorials, as well as learn more about cooperative business and state and national government.
