The contest is open to all students in the junior class except children of Gascosage employees and board of directors that attend the public schools in Crocker, Dixon, Iberia and Newburg.
The topic for the essay is: “Within the next five years, an estimated 14,000 employees will retire from electric co-ops across the nation. What type of job would you like to have at an electric co-op and why?”
Essay length is to be no longer than between 500 to 700 words and typed. On a separate sheet of paper attached to the essay is to be the student’s name, the parents’ names, address, telephone number and email address. We also need the name and address of the school on this sheet.

If you do not have a way to get the essays to me, I can send someone to pick them up, just let me know. This year we are asking that you send the best eight essays for judging.
The sixteen finalists (four from each school) will receive a $60 cash gift when they attend the banquet and final judging on April 12, 2018. Four winners (one from each school) will be awarded the trip to Washington D.C. and the runners’ up (one from each school) can attend the Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience (CYCLE) at Jefferson City in July.
