WALTERS, OK (KSWO)- Four area high school juniors and their teachers have recently been recognized for their efforts.

The students were chosen from seventy-nine essays submitted to the 53rd Annual Rural Electric Youth Tour contest from seven schools.  The “The Power of the Cooperative Model” presentations are judged for speaking ability, knowledge of subject, poise and personality and appearance.

The top four essays were presented by juniors representing three schools in the Cotton Electric service area:

  • Central High High School: Connor Kern
  • Walters High School: Haley Smith
  • Lawton High School: Daisy Cossio
  • Lawton High School: Mathew Meaders

The Cotton Electric Youth Tour winners will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. For a week in June, they will join 1,500 students and follow state-planned itineraries, including time with Oklahoma’s congressional delegation. Cotton Electric Cooperative certificates they received will also allow recipients to participate in opportunities offered by Cotton, Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives, National Rural Electric Cooperatives and Touchstone Energy.
