We have had an excellent time working with our co-op youth on their scholarships and Youth Leadership applications! We received 24 Youth leadership applications and 85 scholarship applications.

Judging for Youth leadership will begin next week and we will post results by Friday, March 6th. Regardless of winning the trip or not, all entries will be notified by mail or e-mail. You must be able to attend the entire trip beginning June 10th and running through June 19th. There will be no special exceptions or travel arrangements made.

Judging for the scholarship applications will take place in Mid-march. All applicants will be notified by mail either way by mid-April. Don’t forget, you must attend a Texas State approved university. Private colleges or out of state programs will not be granted funds. This is due to the program being funded using Texas escheated funds from unclaimed capital credits.

If you win either of the programs, please know you will be on a very tight timeline to return some acceptance paperwork. Failure to do so will forfeit your entry and your award will go to the next alternate.

If you have any questions, please contact Julie Bedsole at communications@nueceselectric.org or 361-767-7321.

Good luck everyone!
