Youth to Washington

Candidates sought to represent EnerStar

For over 50 years, the electric cooperatives of Illinois have given tomorrow’s leaders the opportunity to learn from today’s public officials. EnerStar is on the hunt for two outstanding students to represent our cooperative at the Youth Tour this year. 

EnerStar’s Youth Tour is two separate events: Youth Day in Springfield held in Spring 2019, and the week-long, all-expense paid Youth to Washington trip on June 7-14, 2019. 

During this trip, students will get the chance to meet other students from across the nation, shake hands with political leaders, and visit museums and monuments.

Candidates should be high school sophomores, juniors or seniors in Fall 2019. In addition, candidates must reside in the EnerStar service territory and receive their electricity from EnerStar. 

To learn more and apply online, visit where you will find the application in the “My Community” section. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2019. If you have any questions, please contact EnerStar’s Angela Griffin at 800-635-4145, extension 103 or via email at
