South Dakota Rural Electric Youth Excursion
Each summer, South Dakota's rural electric cooperatives sponsor area students for the South Dakota Rural Electric Youth Excursion. This FREE four-day event takes place in Bismarck and Beulah, North Dakota.
During the four-day all-expense-paid excursion students will stay at Bismarck State College and tour the power-generation facilities in North Dakota where a majority of the electricity they use is produced. Students will also participate in hands-on electrical experiments and attend social activities like swimming, shopping, and a riverboat cruise down the Missouri River. High school students who are dependents of B-Y Electric members are encouraged to apply for the South Dakota Rural Electric Youth Excursion.
