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 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. Applications are available online at www.opalco.com and are due by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12.
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 Utility 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
