Youth Programs

Youth Power and Hope Awards

Indiana Connection and Indiana’s electric cooperatives are proud to sponsor the Youth Power and Hope Awards program. Since 2009, the program has annually honored Indiana youth in grades 5-8 for their community service. Past winners have raised thousands of dollars and donated thousands of toys for Riley Hospital for Children, started a coat drive for the less fortunate, raised funds to cure diabetes, developed a program to provide police officers stuffed animals to comfort children in crisis situations and much more! Could a community-minded youth you know be one of our next winners? Encourage him/her to apply!
