Students visit Capitol for Illinois Cooperative Youth Day (VIDEO)

Students visit Capitol for Illinois Cooperative Youth Day Each year, the Illinois Electric and Telephone Cooperatives, along with the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives, host Youth Day. Juniors in high school from across Illinois come together to meet their legislators and spend the day touring Springfield landmarks.

Students get the opportunity to learn more about state government and gain a better understanding of what legislators do at the Capitol. They also get to meet legislators and ask them questions about their roles in government.

Youth Day ends with students being given the chance to compete for an all-expense-paid weeklong trip to Washington, D.C.
