MCC Sponsors Area Youth

Youth Day & Youth To Washington, D. C. Tour

Great Learning Opportunity…

Youth Day 2015 was held March 25th in Springfield with approximately 275 students in attendance from across the state. Mid Century had the pleasure of sponsoring eleven students from our area high schools. It was a very busy, exciting, long day in Springfield.

The students had the opportunity to meet, ask questions and have their picture taken with Senators John Sullivan and Dave Koehler and Representatives Don Moffitt and Mike Unes. They also met with Secretary of State Jesse White in his office for 30 minutes. During lunch time they heard from Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti who, when finished speaking, took questions from the students. After lunch the students went to the Old State Capitol and the Lincoln Museum.
During the day two students were selected to represent Mid Century on the annual Youth to Washington, D.C. Tour in June. A representative from the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperative selected the winners based on a personal interview and their participation throughout the day. Both Youth Day and Youth to Washington, D.C. Tour are wonderful educational opportunities and Mid Century is proud to be part of them.

Congratulations to this year’s winners and alternate…
• Dylan Freeman – Winner
• Madisyn Johnson – Winner
• Grace Clucas – Alternate
