Morgan Hallgren returned from the Youth Tour all smiles. She said, “I had such an amazing time in Washington, D.C. Our days were filled with different museums and sights. It was all so eye opening, and I learned so much about our country, its history and electric cooperatives. I am so thankful that I was chosen to go and was surrounded by such good people.”
The North Dakota Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to the nation’s capital for a week in June every year since the late 1950s. Morgan Hallgren won this year’s Nodak Electric Cooperative essay contest and received an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., courtesy of the cooperative.
