If you’re a fifth through eighth grader making a difference in your community and you live on electric cooperative lines, apply now for the 2016 Youth Power and Hope Awards.

Electric Consumer and Indiana’s electric cooperatives are proud to sponsor the Youth Power and Hope Awards program. Since 2009, the program has annually honored Indiana youth in grades 5-8 for their community service.

Past winners have raised thousands of dollars and donated thousands of toys for Riley Hospital for Children, started a coat drive for the less fortunate, raised funds to cure diabetes, developed a program to provide police officers stuffed animals to comfort children in crisis situations and much more!

Winters will be honored at a special ceremony in Indianapolis this December and will get the chance to hang out with Oliver Luck, NCAA executive vice president of regulatory affairs and father of Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck.

Applicants must submit an application form, examples of how they have been involved in their local communities and a reference letter from a trusted adult. Parents, please visit to download an application and to learn about past award recipients.

Applications are due Friday, Sept. 30.
