Nodak Youth Tour


Considering the global pandemic, the 2020 and 2021 Youth Tour is canceled.
Please check back in September 2021 for Youth Tour applications for 2022.

Each year, area high school sophomores and juniors whose parents are Nodak members/owners are given the opportunity to be selected to attend an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. in June. Students compete by submitting an essay on a specific topic and the top-rated essay writer is sent by Nodak to join 1,500 other students from across the nation to learn about electric cooperatives, American history and U.S. Government. Participants also take part in National Youth Day, visit with North Dakota representatives in the House and Senate, and explore the sights of Washington, D.C.

Nodak Electric Cooperative holds an essay contest for local high school students and select a student to represent
North Dakota in the Youth Tour each year.
