2020 Youth Tour to Washington Winners

This year, Kyie Salerno and Samuel Konen were selected to represent Vigilante Electric Cooperative as participants on the 2020 Youth tour to Washington DC.  Both young men are students at Twin Bridges High School.  Kyie is a junior and Sam is a sophomore.

The Youth Tour to Washington D.C. is organized by the National Rural Electric Cooperatives’ Association.  Over the years this program has evolved and grown from 400 students from 12 states in 1964 to over 1,500 students and 250 chaperones from 44 states last year.  

During the week participants tour the city and many of its historical treasures, visit with their state’s congressional delegation and participate in youth rallies and socials.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid – 19 pandemic, this year’s tour has been canceled.   We still want to congratulate Kyie and Sam on their selection and we have offered to send them on next year’s Youth Tour.

Participants are selected through and essay contest.  You can read the essays these young men submitted by following the links below.
