Idaho Falls Power supports a variety of educational opportunities to empower today's youth to become tomorrow's leaders.
Each year, Idaho Falls Power sponsors several local high school students at the Idaho Consumer-Owned Utilities Association's (ICUA) annual Youth Rally. For one week, youth -- representing Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Alaska -- converge in Caldwell, Idaho, at the College of Idaho Campus to participate in a variety of activities and classes to promote positive relationships and build skills in leadership, teamwork, perseverance, and more. Students have a chance to also learn more about government, drug and alcohol awareness, and the electrical/energy industry.
IFP covers all expenses for the students to attend the 2018 event, July 9-14. The scholarship program is open to high school sophomores and juniors. Those accepted are also eligible to receive college scholarship awards. At the 2017 rally, students from Idaho Falls received $2,700 in scholarships.
Applications are available at the counselor's offices at the local high schools and at Idaho Falls Power, 140 S Capital Ave. You can also download them below. For more information, please email us.
