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.
The 2020 trip will be June 18-25, starting with an afternoon in Indianapolis for a tour of the state capitol building. Later the students will visit Gettysburg for a tour of the historical battlefield. Students will also visit the Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian Museum, the National Cathedral in D.C. and attend a rally for all Youth Tour delegates from across the nation. There is a dinner cruise on the Potomac River and an all-states dance at the conclusion of the tour.

The safety of our participants and their families is our number one priority. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Indiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. has been canceled for 2021.
