ICUA Youth Rally
& Scholarship Program
ICUA Youth Rally
To demonstrate its support for and education of today's youth, Idaho Falls Power sponsors several local high school students each year at the Idaho Consumer-Owned Utilities Association's annual Youth Rally. This is a great opportunity for the students to learn about the energy industry, electrical safety, future energy needs and the roles that electric companies plays in the community.
What is the Youth Rally?
It is six days filled with fun and learning about consumer-owned utilities, as well as a chance to develop leadership skills and self esteem. Participants get the chance to build relationships with their peers from across the region: Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. Activities include swimming, dancing, bowling, volleyball and roller skating.
