Young people are important to Northern Plains Electric Cooperative. That's why we partake in programs, specifically with them in mind.
Northern Plains Electric Cooperative and Basin Electric Power Cooperatives are offering a $1,000 scholarship to a dependent of a member of Northern Plains Electric for the 2020-2021 school year.
Recognizing that school budgets are often tight, and to help defray trip expenses, Northern Plains Electric's board of directors has approved a $100 donation to any high school in the cooperative's service area that takes a group of students to the state Capitol to view North Dakota's legislative process in action.
As part of our youth education programs every year, Northern Plains Electric Cooperative offers its assistance to local school districts (in Northern Plains service area) in scheduling tours of the Antelope Valley coal-generating plant, the Coteau Freedom coal mine and the Great Plains coal gasification plant.
Annually, NPEC sponsors a safety poster contest for children in kindergarten to sixth grade. The purpose of the safety poster contest is to help make children aware of the dangers of electricity. Click for rules and deadline.
