Each year Tri-County Electric partners with our statewide organizations in Tennessee and Kentucky to sponsor the Electric Cooperative Writing Contest. Winners also qualify for thousands of dollars in scholarships.
High school juniors are asked to submit a short story not exceeding 900 words of a specific title each year. This year’s story title was Electric Cooperatives Connect. The short stories are judged on appropriate treatment of theme and knowledge of subject, originality and creativity, and grammar and composition. For more information check out youthtour.tnelectric.org.
Tri-County Electric had winners from five area high schools. Four students received the trip from our service area, and they will be accompanied by Lindsay Wilkinson, Marketing Assistant, and Tammy Marlow, Red Boiling Springs English Teacher. All five of the first-place winners received $100 and the three second-place winners received $50.
