Local high school sophomores or juniors whose households are served by Flathead Electric Cooperative have until Nov. 1 to apply for a chance to win one of two spots on an all-expense-paid trip to the nation’s capitol next June.

The two local students will join more than 1,500 high-school students from around the country on the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.
