Indiana’s own Miss America 2009 Katie Stam and Electric Consumer, the statewide publication of Indiana’s electric cooperatives, are teaming up to recognize the community spirit of Indiana’s youth.
The inaugural Youth Power and Hope Awards Contest emphasizes the important role young Hoosiers can play in their communities. The contest is open to Indiana fifth through eighth graders who reside within Clark County REMC service territory. Entrants must complete an entry form, submit an essay regarding community service, provide examples of how they have been involved in their local community, and include a letter of reference from a trusted adult.
Five winners will be chosen from all entrants to attend a private luncheon with Miss American on December 17 in Indianapolis, have their entry essays published in Electric Consumer and be special guests at a presentation by Miss America at the Indiana statewide Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives’ 75th Annual Meeting on December 17, among other highlights. An entry form and contest details can be found at www.electricconsumer.org.
