Cooperative Youth Summit

Cooperative Youth Summit for High School Sophomores

The annual Cooperative Youth Summit is an all expenses paid trip to South Carolina’s capital, each summer for current high school sophomores (rising juniors). Selected youth representatives will tour the Statehouse, meet with lawmakers, see how co-ops are preparing for our state’s energy future, and enjoy Columbia’s popular attractions, including Riverbanks Zoo!

Horry Electric sponsors four (4) representatives to participate in the Cooperative Youth Summit. Interested sophomores will need to submit an application and participate in a personal interview as part of the selection process.

The 2024 application for the Cooperative Youth Summit can be found below. The deadline to submit your application is Wednesday, January 31 at 11:59 p.m.

Horry Electric Cooperative’s Youth Summit Coordinator is Jennifer Cummings. She can be reached at 843-369-6331 or jennifer.cummings@horryelectric.com.
