Each year, MJM sends two high school students to Washington, D.C., on a week-long educational trip where they learn how the government and electric cooperatives operate. It’s a great opportunity for students to expand their horizons.
The first step towards qualifying for that trip is Youth Day, a trip to Springfield, Illinois, where students visit government offices, watch the legislative process in action, meet with their elected representatives, hear speeches on topics of the day and participate in activities with other youth from around Illinois.
Both trips are chaperoned by adults and are expense-free for the students. Interested high school sophomores and juniors, please contact Eric Cooper at 217-707-6028 for more details.
