2021 Connect Con: A Youth Leadership Experience
Connect Con 2021: A Youth Leadership Experience is a FREE four-day event which will take place in Spearfish, South Dakota. The 2021 dates for Connect Con are July 26-29.
During the four-day all-expense paid trip students will stay at Black Hills State University and learn about electric cooperatives, participate in leadership training, team-building activities, and tour power-generation facilities. Students will also participate in social activities like hiking and swimming. High school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors of Northern Electric Cooperative consumers are encouraged to apply for the 2021 Connect Con.
Due to capacity restrictions, only two students from Northern Electric Cooperative will be selected for 2021 Connect Con.
Students from the Northern Electric service territory who attend Connect Con will also be eligible to apply for the Youth Tour trip to Washington D.C. the following year. Youth Tour is a gathering of teens from electric cooperatives across the country and is held every June in the nation’s capital. Only Northern Electric teens who have previously attended Connect Con can apply for the all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C.

The application deadline is May 28, 2021.
