Katie was GHS’s winner of the UCEMC and Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association’s essay contest which gives high school juniors a chance to compete for a scholarship and a trip to Washington D.C. each year.
Suppose you’ll be a high school junior this fall, and your parents are Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation members. In that case, you are eligible to enter our essay contest coming up in November! Five students, one winner chosen from each high school in the Upper Cumberland, will represent the cooperative on an all-expense-paid trip to our nation’s capital to see government in action and receive a $1,000 scholarship upon graduation. Students spend an exciting week visiting museums, monuments, and other landmarks.
