Camp Kilowatt 

Date: June 7-10

A fun and unique camp experience for students entering seventh grade. The camp takes place in early June and gives kids a chance to learn about energy while making new friends and enjoying activities and games. This three-day camp includes horseback riding, electric cooperative education, rock climbing, swimming and much more.

Indiana Youth Tour

Date: June 11-18

During the month of June, Indiana’s electric cooperatives sponsor an unforgettable educational adventure to Washington, D.C., for high school seniors-to-be. This seven-day trip includes visits with Indiana’s congressional leaders on Capitol Hill and a youth event with student delegates from across the country.

If you know someone that would enjoy these opportunities, encourage them to visit indianayouthtour.org or campkilowatt.org for an online application. Both experiences are FREE and available to students whose parent(s) or guardian(s) live in the Miami-Cass REMC service territory. Deadline to apply is March 1.

Cooperative Calendar of Student Art Contest

Indiana K-12 public, private or home-schooled students are invited to enter the Cooperative Calendar of Student Art Contest for a chance to illustrate an award-winning wall calendar. Each year, 13 first-place winners and additional honorable mention winners will have their artwork featured in the calendar — and will receive cash prizes. Winners will also have their artwork displayed at the annual Hoosier Salon exhibition. Learn more at IndianaConnection.org/for-youth/art-contest. Deadline is March 24.

Youth Power and Hope Awards

Each year, Indiana’s electric cooperatives, Indiana Connection magazine and Indiana Electric Cooperatives honor students in grades 5-8 who exemplify community service.

If you know a student who gives back to his/her community, encourage them to apply for this prestigious award. Details and application information will be available this summer.
