$1,000 + Youth Leadership Camp for Sophomores and Juniors: Apps Due April 12

OPALCO’s Nourdine Jensen Cooperative Youth Scholarship Program is accepting applications from high school sophomores and juniors of OPALCO member households. Up to five scholars will receive a $1,000 scholarship from OPALCO and the family of Nourdine Jensen, as well as an all-expenses paid trip to the Youth Rally, a co-op leadership camp at the College of Idaho. Applications are available online  and are due by 4:30 pm on Friday, April 12th.

The Youth Rally is a week of summer camp fun, personal growth and learning with about 100 students from eight western states. Activities include a day at the water park, volleyball, bowling, social dances, team-building games and educational sessions on leadership, grassroots governance and the power industry. Additional scholarships are awarded at the Rally by the Idaho Consumer Owned Utility Association (ICUA).

It’s easy to apply: fill out a one-page application and write a one-page letter explaining why you would be a good ambassador of OPALCO.  Applications are due on Friday, April 12th at 4:30 pm to communications@opalco.com. Please call Suzanne at 360-376-3537 if you have questions. And, check out photos from past years at https://www.flickr.com/photos/opalco/ and also on Facebook @ICUAYouthRally. It’s fun!
