Submitted by OPALCO.

Orcas Power and Light Cooperative’s Nourdine Jensen Cooperative Youth Scholarship Program is accepting applications from high school sophomores and juniors of OPALCO member households. Up to five scholars will receive a $1,000 scholarship from both OPALCO and the family of Nourdine Jensen, as well as an all-expenses paid trip to the Youth Rally, a co-op leadership camp at the College of Idaho.

The Youth Rally is a week of summer camp fun, personal growth and learning with about 100 students from eight western states. Activities include a day at the water park, volleyball, bowling, social dances, team-building games and educational sessions on leadership, grassroots governance and the power industry. Additional scholarships are awarded at the rally by the Idaho Consumer-Owned Utilities Association.

It’s easy to apply: fill out a one-page application and write a one-page letter explaining why you would be a good ambassador of OPALCO. Applications are online: opalco.com/members/youth-rally-scholarships. Applications are due on Friday, April 12, at 4:30 p.m. to communications@opalco.com. Please call Suzanne at 360-376-3537 if you have questions. And check out photos from past years at https://www.flickr.com/photos/opalco/ and on Facebook @ICUAYouthRally.
