Youth Rally - Scholarship Program
The Youth Rally is a scholarship competition and leadership program sponsored by consumer-owned utilities throughout the Northwest. Each spring, six students are selected from our service area to join about 80 other students at the College of Idaho in Caldwell, Idaho. Most students are from Idaho but many also come from Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Nevada, Utah & Wyoming.
Each of the six students selected to represent CPC will receive a scholarship (ranging from $1200 - $500) from Clearwater Power at our Annual Meeting in November. In addition, each student is eligible to earn another scholarships (ranging from $300 - $600) from ICUA at the Rally in July.
One lucky student attending the Rally will be selected to represent Idaho at the National Youth Tour in Washington D.C. the following June! The National Youth Tour is sponsored by National Rural Electric Association (NRECA).
The Rally is a five-day event where students learn leadership, teamwork, cooperation and communication skills. It also promotes an understanding of the utility industry and in particular, public power. The Youth Rally is sponsored by the Idaho Consumer-owned Utilities Association (ICUA) and other participating co-ops.
