Alfalfa Electric Cooperative in Cherokee, Oklahoma, is once again sponsoring its Youth Tour Essay Contest for all high school juniors. The Youth Tour Program is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about cooperatives, to go on trips of a lifetime, and to win scholarship money. Leadership skills will be developed and improved through these programs. The necessary steps of the contest are as follows:

  • Students must write their own essays and submit them along with the application form and activity sheet.
  • A skilled judge will determine the top seven essay winners.
  • These seven students must agree to go through a short interview process.
  • All Finalists will receive $500. Two alternates will receive $250. 

Check back in Fall 2021 for the Essay Contest prompt and all sign-up information!

Safety Smart

AEC offers our Safety Smart Program for 2nd and 3rd grades to the schools in our service territory. The program consists of indoor and outdoor electric safety. Animated videos of either Louie Lightning Bug or Kato and the Safety Rangers remind students to be safe around electricity. An electric safety demonstration shows how electricity can be dangerous if not respected.
