Prairie Land has a long tradition of sponsoring high school juniors for all-expense-paid trips designed to enrich their leadership potential. Students have benefited from leadership camps in Colorado, youth tours in Washington, D.C., a KEY leadership conference in Topeka and scholarships. 

The youth tour to Washington, D.C., is back, and will take place June 15-22, 2023. Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp near Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is 
July 14-20, 2023.

The competitors interviewed at the Concordia office on Feb. 5, or the Norton office on Feb. 12.

Our winners are pictured above. Skylar Kahrs and Arabella Wernecke, both of Clifton, will attend the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. Erin Schmitt of Beloit and Layton Johnson of Phillipsburg chose to attend Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp.

This is an outstanding opportunity for these students to network with other young leaders, learn about electric cooperatives, practice some engineering and watch our government in action. Congratulations to these impressive young leaders!
