Montgomery Youth Tour & Washington, D.C. Youth Tour
The Montgomery Youth Tour is an annual event sponsored by the Alabama Rural Electric Association (AREA). Counselors from our local high schools nominate deserving members of the junior class. In March, the group of students representing Cullman EC is joined by other high school students from across Alabama for several days to visit historic sites, meet state leaders, learn about state politics and have a whole lot of fun! In June, the Washington, D.C. Youth Tour is hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). Each year, three of Cullman EC’s youth tour participants travel with other students from Alabama for the week-long conference attended by more than 1,500 students from all over the country.
