Each year, MTEMC sponsors a creative writing contest with an unforgettable, expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., as its prize. This opportunity of a lifetime provides high school juniors the chance to explore our nation’s capital, network with other young leaders and qualify for additional trips and scholarships.
To enter the contest, students are asked to write short stories describing how local electric co-ops are connecting their communities with power, information and opportunities. If you know a student or teacher who might like to participate, share this information with him or her. Teachers are encouraged to present the creative essay contest to their students as part of their classroom assignments. The deadline to submit a story is Friday, Feb. 14, and the trip takes place June 19-25. For more information, feel free to contact Community Relations Coordinator Jay Sanders at 615-494-1065 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
