Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience
Attached is the application for CYCLE (Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience) program.
This is a three-day leadership camp in Jefferson City where students learn about cooperatives and government. Even though COVID kept us from hosting an event with students around the state this past year, the delegates had a great time hearing motivational speakers and visiting with Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe.
This program is open to high school sophomores. To participate, they need to fill out the application and return it by March 18.
Three Rivers Electric Coop will award the trip to six students and the six runners-up will receive $50.
