High School Juniors Eligible For “Trip of a Lifetime” to Washington, D.C.
Perhaps OEC’s best-known and most anticipated youth program, Youth Tour offers high school juniors a week-long, all-expenses-paid educational trip to Washington, D.C. in June. Four deserving students travel with the Oklahoma delegation (70+ students) to our nation’s capital where they tour historic sites and national landmarks, meet Oklahoma’s congressional delegation and more. Youth Tour has earned a reputation as “a trip of a lifetime” among former participants. 4703300502
This year’s trip is scheduled for June 16-22, 2023, but interested applicants should keep reading or visit the link below for the full list of contest requirements.
PART 1: COMMUNITY PROJECT
Cooperatives are businesses created by like-minded people to address a common unmet need. Cooperatives come in all shapes and sizes, but they all hold to the seven Cooperative Principles and core values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. This is what makes the cooperative difference.
Assignment: Imagine you are granted $500 to create a project benefitting your community. How would you utilize the funds? Create a project proposal outlining your project using the sample template as a basis.
PART 2: COMMUNITY PROJECT PROMOTION
An event, fundraiser, or community initiative will only succeed if people know and care about it.
ASSIGNMENT: Create a promotional video for your community project*. (Max: 2 min/2 MB)
PART 3: LETTER TO A LEADER
Oklahoma Youth Tour allows students to see the government working up close. During our day on Capitol Hill, we walk the halls of Congress, visit with members of the Oklahoma federal delegation, and tour the U.S. Capitol. Being an informed and active constituent is an important civic duty.
ASSIGNMENT: Write a professional letter to an elected official about an issue important to you. This could be the issue surrounding your community project or an unrelated issue.
