2017 Youth Tour photo gallery

In June 2017, Tipmont proudly sponsored 20 area students going into their senior year of high school on Youth Tour, a life-changing educational adventure to Gettysburg and Washington, D.C.

The students were part of a 100+ member Indiana delegation that joined 1,500 students from electric cooperatives around the country in activities including a youth rally hosted by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. The Indiana delegation also spent a day on Capitol Hill, where they met with Indiana’s congressional representatives and senators.
