Shelly Peterson, Wheat Belt PPD
The Nebraska Rural Electric Association offers a Youth Energy Leadership Camp every year. This is an excellent camp that provides great leadership and team building activities. Wheat Belt Public Power District (WBPPD) encourages and sponsors area youth to attend. Camp will be held July 9-13, 2023.
We invite Freshman, Sophomore or Junior students to attend this all-expense paid and fun-filled camp. All are welcome to apply; however, preference is given to those students who are dependents of WBPPD customers.
You are going to make life-long friends, learn about the electric industry through interesting workshops, attend fascinating demonstrations and presentations by regional experts addressing the many issues affecting the rural electric program. There’s also swimming, sports, a tour to the Gerald Gentleman Power Station and the Kingsley Hydro-Electric Power Plant, a banquet, and a dance!
Once students have participated in the Youth Energy Camp, they are eligible to serve as one of the Nebraska Ambassadors to the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Rural Electric Youth Tour or to be sponsored by WBPPD to attend the Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. in 2024.
Don’t miss this great opportunity! To apply contact Shelley Peterson, (308) 254-5871 or [email protected], by May 15, 2023.
