High school freshmen, sophomores or juniors attending a high school in Federated's service area can enter. Pick up an application from the school counselor or contact Federated (info@federatedrea.coop or call 1-800-321-3520). The application and information are also found on Federated's website (www.federatedrea.coop).

The student writes a 300-word essay on an energy-related topic, which is due with the application by Feb. 1, 2012.

Five finalists are selected for short interviews. The combined scores from the essay, interview and application determine the trip winner, along with second and third place, who receive $150 and $100, respectively.

The winner will travel with 40 other Minnesota teens sponsored by other rural electric co-ops. Federated's delegate is one of 1,200 delegates nationally.
