Youth Rally

Idaho Consumer Owned Utilities Association

(ICUA) Youth Rally

THE REGIONAL EVENT FOR 2020 WAS CANCELED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19).

A DECISION ON RESUMING THE IN PERSON EVENT FOR 2021 WILL BE MADE IN THE SPRING.

This event will help your teen build leadership and team building skills, gain knowledge about the electric industry, learn about cooperatives and industry related careers, while meeting new friends from across the Northwest – at no cost to you!

In 2019, Fall River Electric sponsored three high school students who attended the Idaho Consumer Owned Utilities Association’s Youth Rally.
