Youth Power & Hope Awards
Highlighting the Community Spirit of Co-op Youth
Sponsored by Indiana Connection, the Youth Power and Hope awards recognize Indiana fifth through eighth graders who have played an important role in their communities. The publication issues a call for entries each fall, during which time entrants complete an essay regarding community service, listing their community involvement and providing a letter of reference. The winners are honored at a ceremony at the Indiana Electric Cooperatives annual meeting in December each year. In addition to their recognition, these civic-minded youngsters receive a night's stay in Indianapolis, a $100 gift card, and take part in a special luncheon. Read more about the awards here.
