2021 UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the unpredictability of COVID-19 and its effect on future travel, it’s been decided that three of our annual in-person opportunities will be canceled in 2021: Indiana Youth Tour, Touchstone Energy Camp and Indiana Electric Cooperative Page Day.
The health and safety of our students and chaperones are always Noble REMC’s priority, and the current state of the pandemic prevents us from safely offering these programs or planning a quality trip with the information available to us at this time.
Noble REMC awards three $1,000 scholarships annually to help area students further their education at an accredited college or trade school of their choice.
Indiana Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., each June is a great way to for local high school juniors to learn more about our government and electric cooperatives, as well as develop leadership skills and lifetime friendships.
The annual Touchstone Energy Camp blends traditional camp activities – like archery, arts and crafts, and canoeing – with educational sessions about electrification, electrical safety and understanding the cooperative business principles and the environment. The camp is available for local students in sixth grade.
Indiana students – kindergarten through 12th grade – are encouraged to “be part of a gallery of art” by entering the annual Cooperative Calendar of Student Art Contest sponsored by Indiana's Electric Cooperatives, including your local electric cooperative, Noble REMC.
The first 200 youth who enroll in 4-H by Jan. 15 of the 4-H year, and whose families are Noble REMC electric customers, will have their 4-H program fee reimbursed by the REMC.
Noble REMC has a table top electrical safety demonstration to educate youth and adults alike on the importance of electrical safety.
The Youth Power and Hope Award is presented to students in 5th-8th grades who are active leaders in their community and whose parents live on electric cooperative lines in Indiana. Being an active member in the community can mean anything from volunteering at your church to being involved with 4-H to helping support local hospitals or other community organizations.
