Clinton County Electric Cooperative, Inc. is again sponsoring its "Youth to Washington" and "Youth to Springfield" programs this spring.  Clinton County Electric will sponsor up to twelve sophomore or junior students, whose parents or guardians are served by CCEC, on an all-expense paid trip to Springfield on Wednesday, April 3, 2019.  During the day the students and their counterparts from other Illinois high schools will meet their elected senators and representatives at the Capitol and learn first-hand about the workings of state government.  Clinton County Electric Cooperative will also sponsor two of these students on a weeklong, all-expense paid bus trip to Washington, D.C. on June 14-21, 2019. Clinton County Electric’s two "Youth to Washington" representatives will be selected from the contingent that tours Springfield on April 3.  (The two students will be chosen from their written and verbal responses to judges who will interview all student representatives in Springfield.)  All applications for Youth Day must be received at the Clinton County Electric Cooperative office by March 4, 2019.  The application for Youth Day is available at, under the Youth Programs tab.
