See the video below to learn more about this great leadership opportunity, and apply now for a chance to attend!


Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative (HOEC) continues its commitment to support area youth in education. The Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience (CYCLE), is a statewide effort of the Electric Cooperatives of Missouri designed to bring together some of the brightest young high school students to learn about electric cooperatives and state government. The Association of the Missouri Electric Cooperatives hosts the conference each July. HOEC will again sponsor two high school seniors to attend the conference this year.

CYCLE will take place July 17th – 19th, 2019 at the Double Tree Hotel and Conference Center in Jefferson City. The conference has grown each year as more students participate and more delegates are sponsored by the cooperatives. In July of 2018, more than 105 high school students attended from all parts of Missouri. Last year’s delegate, Tiffany Daugherty said “CYCLE was a great opportunity to meet and interact with other students my age from all across the state.” She also stated that other highlights of the conference included hearing from nationally known speakers and learning more about electric cooperatives. Tiffany ended by saying, “I would definitely recommend CYCLE to other students.”

To apply to become a CYCLE delegate, students who are currently juniors, are required to complete an application and answer a few questions about themselves. An official application can be acquired on the CYCLE page of this HOEC website. The application can be completed online, or it can be printed, filled out and mailed to the cooperative. If a student would prefer, they may produce a two or three minute video, verbally answering the questions to apply.

Two students will be selected from an independent group of judges to attend CYCLE. The deadline to enter is February 18th, 2019.
