OPALCO established the Nourdine Jensen Cooperative Youth Scholarship Program in 2010 to honor longtime Co-op board member Nourdine Jensen. The program is open to sophomores and juniors of OPALCO member households. The award includes a $500 OPALCO college scholarship, an all-expenses-paid trip to the Youth Rally Co-op leadership camp in Idaho, and the chance to compete for additional scholarship awards at the Rally.

The Youth Rally is a fun-packed week of activity including a day at the water park, roller skating, volleyball, bowling, social dances, team-building games and educational sessions on leadership and the power industry. The College of Idaho campus is an ideal home base for this summer adventure.

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 online: www.opalco.com/members/youth-rally-scholarships/. Applications are due on Friday, March 11th at 4:30 pm to Suzanne Olson – solson@opalco.com. Please call Suzanne at 360-376-3537 if you have questions.
