Youth Tour Day
SMEC has sent two students from its service area on an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. every year since 1969. Winners are selected during the annual Youth Tour Day competition, which is held at the co-op office each spring. School sponsors select two juniors from each high school in the co-op service area to compete.
Four winners are selected to attend the Montgomery Youth Tour and two of those four win a trip to Washington, D.C. as part of that tour. Both trips are expense free for the winning students.
