WASHINGTON YOUTH TOUR

Thank you for your interest in the Washington Youth Tour. Little Ocmulgee EMC is not participating in the Washington Youth Tour for the 2016-2017 school term. Check this space periodically to learn if we will be participating in future Youth Tours.

Applications for consideration in the 2016 Washington Youth Tour are being accepted from high school junions and seniors who reside in a home served by Little Ocmulgee EMC (LOEMC). The contest winner will join more than 100 delegates from Georgia, who represent our state during the tour, scheduled for June 9-16, 2016.

The winner of an essay writing and interview contest will be awarded the trip, which begins in Atlanta with a kick-off banquet and continues with a weeklong exploration of Washington, D.C. Students must be 16 years old by June 9 and attend either Wheeler County High School in Alamo, Telfair County High School in McRae, or West Laurens High School in Dexter.

Participants are required to submit a 500-to 750-word essay on a preselected topic. The essay will be judged on knowledge of subject, originality, composition, neatness and grammar. The essay deadline to LOEMC is noon, Friday, February 12, 2016.. Four finalists will be chosen to appear for an interview by a committee of judges on March 9, 2016. A winner will then be slected and prizes awarded to the runners-up.

Students interested in developing their leadership skills and making friendships that will last a lifetime, while taking a pilgrimage to the nation's capitol, should contact their high school English Department or Gary L. Selph at LOEMC. For an application or more information, call 1-800-342-1290.

Relatives of LOEMC employees and directors are prohibited from entering the local contest and are required to apply in a separate statewide contest. Contact LOEMC for details.
